ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server for images to appear on a particular website. They allow you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various 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 on.
