ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server for images to appear on a certain website. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution 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 don't need to stick to just one language to develop your website. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
