ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server for images to appear on a particular website. They enable you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly be performed online and in real time, so if you include 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 the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular language to create your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
