ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a server to enable images to appear on a certain website. They permit you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can 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 show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to develop your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
