If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the web server where you host it ought to have the proper software for that. Instead of 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 using a script application.

The two libraries will enable you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
