ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server to enable images to show up on a specific website. They permit you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be performed online and in real time, so if you add 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 depending upon the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to build your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
