ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server to enable images to appear on a given internet site. They permit you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can 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 depending upon the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to build your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
