ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server in order for images to show up on a particular site. They permit you to perform different 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 appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to develop your website. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
