ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick suitable for? What is the GD Library? What is the reason for their popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server for images to appear on a specific internet site. They enable you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to create your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
