ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to appear on a specific website. They enable you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be performed online and in real time, so if you include 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 with regards to the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to build your site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
