ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server for images to appear on a specific site. They enable you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily 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 appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to just one language to develop your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
