ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a specific internet site. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular language to create your website. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
