ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a certain site. They allow you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be carried out 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to create your website. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
