ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a specific site. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be carried out 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to develop your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
