ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server in order for images to show up on a certain site. They allow you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to build your website. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
