ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that 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 on. These things can be performed 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to build your website. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
