ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a certain website. They permit you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can be carried out online and in real time, so if you add 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 depending on the device and resolution the site visitor is using.

They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
