ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick used for? What is the GD Library? What is the reason for their popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a particular website. They permit you to carry out 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 add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to only one language to create your internet site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
