ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a specific internet site. They permit you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can easily be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to build your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
