ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick used for? What is the GD Library? What lies behind their recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server for images to appear on a specific website. They allow you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be done 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to only one language to develop your site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
