ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn more about ImageMagick and GD Library to discover why they're currently present on almost every single web server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to show up on a specific website. They enable you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can be carried out 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to build your site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
