ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to appear on a specific site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can 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 appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to only one language to build your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
