ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server to enable images to appear on a given site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to build your website. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
