ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a particular site. They enable you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular language to create your site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
