ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a specific internet site. They enable you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can be done 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 which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to just one language to develop your website. They work with over 100 formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
