ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a certain site. They allow you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can easily be carried out 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 with regards to the device and resolution that 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 have to stick to one particular language to create your site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
