ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to appear on a specific internet site. They permit you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular language to build your internet site. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
