ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a certain site. They enable you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be performed 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 website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which 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 have to stick to just one language to create your website. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
