ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server in order for images to show up on a particular site. They enable you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, 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 website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to build your site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
