ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is utilized for and why they are so well liked.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server to enable images to show up on a given site. They allow you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly be done online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, 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 that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to only one language to create your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
