ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server to enable images to show up on a certain internet site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to create your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
