ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server for images to show up on a particular site. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily 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 show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to only one language to develop your internet site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
