ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server for images to appear on a given site. They allow you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to just one language to build your site. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
