ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn more about ImageMagick and GD Library to find out why they're currently present on almost every single web server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a specific site. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be carried out 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to create your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
