ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out more about ImageMagick and GD Library to find out why they're currently present on almost every single web server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a given internet site. They permit you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be done 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 internet site 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 employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to develop your site. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
