ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a specific website. They enable you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with a lot of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to create your website. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
