ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a given website. They permit you to execute 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 include a static image, for example, 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 that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to create your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
