ImageMagick and GD Library
Discover what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library can be used for and why they're so well liked.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a specific internet site. They permit you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. 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 depending on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to develop your internet site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
