ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server in order for images to show up on a particular internet site. They allow you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily be performed online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to develop your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
