Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are doable through 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 like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based app that you'd like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
