ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a particular website. They allow you to carry out different 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 include 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 based on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to build your internet site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
