ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server in order for images to show up on a particular internet site. They permit you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can 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 depending upon the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to build your internet site. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
