ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out more about ImageMagick and GD Library to find out why they are now present on almost every web server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server in order for images to show up on a specific internet site. They permit you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site 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 employed with lots of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to create your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
