ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick used for? What precisely is the GD Library? What lies behind their popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a particular site. They enable you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various 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 more than a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
