ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server in order for images to appear on a certain website. They allow you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. 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 appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to create your site. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
