ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a given site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can be performed 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 depending on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to develop your site. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
