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 site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a server and which work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based app that you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
