ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to appear on a specific internet site. They enable you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly 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 appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to create your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
