ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server in order for images to appear on a particular site. They allow you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be carried out 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 with regards to the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to only one language to develop your website. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
