ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a specific site. They allow you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to create your site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
