ImageMagick and GD Library
Discover more about ImageMagick and GD Library to discover why they are now present on almost every single web server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server in order for images to show up on a given internet site. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to develop your website. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
