ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server for images to show up on a given website. They permit you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can be done online and in real time, so if you include 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 the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with a lot of 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 more than 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
