ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a certain website. They enable you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can be done online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to build your site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
