ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to appear on a certain site. They permit you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, 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 which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to build your site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
