ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server in order for images to appear on a certain site. They enable you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be carried out 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to create your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
