ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server to enable images to appear on a certain website. They permit you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be performed 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to build your website. They work with over 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
