ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server to enable images to show up on a specific internet site. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily 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 website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to create your website. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
