ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a given site. They enable you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website 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 a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to develop your website. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
