ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server to enable images to appear on a particular internet site. They allow you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can easily be carried out 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 internet 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 used with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to build your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
