ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server in order for images to show up on a given site. They permit you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily be carried out online and in real time, so if you add 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 depending upon the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to create your internet site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
