ImageMagick and GD Library
Discover more about ImageMagick and GD Library and see why they are now present on almost every server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a specific website. They allow you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could 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 show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to create your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
