ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server for images to appear on a certain site. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to build your website. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
