ImageMagick and GD Library
Discover what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is used for and why they are so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to show up on a given website. They permit you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can be carried out online and in real time, so if you include 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 based on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to build your internet site. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
