As an alternative to 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 could even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be installed on a server and which work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based app that you would like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
