ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server for images to appear on a particular internet site. They permit you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to develop your site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
