ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a certain internet site. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. 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 website or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to build your site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
