ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a certain internet site. They allow you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could 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 website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to only one language to build your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
