ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a specific website. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to create your website. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
