ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick suitable for? What exactly is the GD Library? What is the reason for their global popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server in order for images to show up on a certain website. They permit you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly 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 appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to create your website. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
