ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server for images to show up on a certain website. They allow you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be done 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 depending upon the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to build your website. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
