ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out more about ImageMagick and GD Library and discover why they're currently present on almost every server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a given website. They allow you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can 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 show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to develop your site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
