ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server for images to appear on a given website. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be done 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution which the website 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 need to stick to one particular language to develop your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
