ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server in order for images to appear on a particular website. They allow 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 website or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to develop your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
