ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server in order for images to appear on a certain site. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you add 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 upon the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to build your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
