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 a website doable, so they need to be available on a web server if you host your sites on it and you prefer to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you'll be able to edit any image in many ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etc. However, these changes are possible if the script application which you use on your internet site enables you to carry out such things. The two libraries could be used with various programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support over a hundred widely used image formats that you will be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
