ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server in order for images to show up on a given website. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to just one language to create your site. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
