ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server for images to show up on a certain site. They permit you to execute a variety of 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 example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to develop your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
