ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server in order for images to appear on a particular site. They enable you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to develop your site. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
