ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server for images to show up on a certain site. They permit you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly be performed 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically based on 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 don't have to stick to a single language to build your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
