ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a particular internet site. They permit you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to develop your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
