ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server for images to show up on a particular site. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular language to build your internet site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
