ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server for images to show up on a particular internet site. They permit you to perform a variety of 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 add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to develop your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
