ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server in order for images to appear on a certain website. They enable you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things could be performed online and in real time, so if you include 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 visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to just one language to create your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
