ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is used for and why they are so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server for images to appear on a certain site. They allow you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly 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 appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to build your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
