ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to show up on a particular website. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular language to create your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
