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 which should be present on a server to enable images to show up on a particular website. They enable you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily 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 upon the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to develop your website. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
