ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a specific website. They permit you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be carried out 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 with regards to the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to build your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
