ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a certain website. They permit you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to create your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
