ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick used for? What is the GD Library? What lies behind their recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to show up on a specific internet site. They permit you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could 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 appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to develop your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
