ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a certain website. They allow you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. 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 website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to create your website. They work with over 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
