ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server to enable images to show up on a particular website. They enable you to perform a variety of 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 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 based on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to develop your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
