ImageMagick and GD Library
Discover what ImageMagick is and what the GD Library can be used for and why they're so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server for images to appear on a particular internet site. They permit you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be performed 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to create your site. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
