ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server for images to appear on a certain site. They permit you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution 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 have to stick to just one language to create your internet site. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
