ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server in order for images to appear on a certain internet site. They permit you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the site 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 need to stick to one particular language to develop your website. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
