ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server in order for images to appear on a given site. They enable you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to develop your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
