ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server for images to appear on a certain site. They permit you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can be done 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to build your site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
