ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to appear on a certain website. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can 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 website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to create your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
