ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a server in order for images to appear on a given site. They permit you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to create your website. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
