ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server to enable images to appear on a certain site. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can 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 appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to develop your site. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
