ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widespread graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site possible, so they must be installed on a server if you host your sites on it and you would want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you will be able to edit any image in various ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so forth.

The two libraries can easily be used with different website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support more than a hundred widely used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
