ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a specific website. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular language to develop your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
