ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a particular website. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be performed online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to build your website. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
