ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is and what the GD Library can be used for and why they are so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a specific website. They enable you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily 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 based on the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to only one language to create your site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
