ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a specific internet site. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly 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 appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to create your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
