ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server to enable images to show up on a particular internet site. They enable you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to create your website. They work with over 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
