ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a specific internet site. They allow you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet 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 may be used with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to develop your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
