ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a particular site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily 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 appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular 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.
