ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server for images to appear on a certain site. They permit you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you include 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 with regards to the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to develop your internet site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
