ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick intended for? What precisely is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server in order for images to show up on a given website. They allow you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be done 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to build your site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.

You can also convert text to images, which gives you a number of opportunities with regards to what content you'll be able to offer on the website.
