ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a certain website. They permit you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily 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 appear 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 can be employed with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to just one 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.
