If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it should have the suitable software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be installed on a web server and which work with a lot of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based app you'd like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
