ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to appear on a given internet site. They permit you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to develop your internet site. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
