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 hosting server in order for images to show up on a given internet site. They enable you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the 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 may be used with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to build your website. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
