ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a certain site. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can certainly 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can 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 develop your site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
