ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a given internet site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things could 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 with regards to the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to build your site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
