ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a specific website. They allow you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. 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 website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to develop your internet site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
