ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server in order for images to show up on a specific internet site. They allow you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to build your website. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
