ImageMagick and GD Library
Find what ImageMagick is as well as what the GD Library is used for and why they're so popular.
If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server in which you host it must have the proper software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be set up on a hosting server and which work with a lot of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based app you'd like, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
