ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server for images to appear on a specific site. They allow you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to just one language to build your website. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
