ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is and what the GD Library is utilized for and why they're so well liked.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a specific site. They allow you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to just one language to create your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
