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 enable you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be done 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 based on the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to only one language to create your site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
