ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a certain website. They permit you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can 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 lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to develop your website. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
