ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a certain site. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can be performed 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 based on the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with lots of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to only one language to develop your website. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
