ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a specific website. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. 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 show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to build your internet site. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
