ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server to enable images to appear on a given internet site. They allow you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to build your internet site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
