ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server for images to appear on a given site. They enable you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to create your website. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
