ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to show up on a given website. They permit you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly 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 with regards to the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to only one language to build your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
