ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn more about ImageMagick and GD Library and see why they are currently present on almost every single server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server in order for images to appear on a particular site. They permit you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can 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 show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with a lot of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to create your website. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
