ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server to enable images to appear on a specific internet site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. 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 appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used 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 website. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
