ImageMagick and GD Library
Find what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is utilized for and why they're so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server to enable images to appear on a particular site. They enable you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly be done 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 based on the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to develop your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.

In case you are a web developer, you'll be able to write the program code yourself as we also support a lot of programming languages PHP and Python are some of them.
