ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a given website. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. 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 based on the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to build your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
