ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to appear on a given website. They enable you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily 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 appear 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 can be used with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to develop your website. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
