ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a given site. They allow you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the website 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 do not have to stick to only one language to build your site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
