ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out more about ImageMagick and GD Library and discover why they are now present on almost every server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a specific internet site. They enable you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily 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 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 used with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to develop your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
