ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to show up on a specific site. They enable you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to develop your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
