ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widely used graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site feasible, so they need to be installed on a server if you host your internet sites on it and you would like to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you will be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so forth. However, these changes are doable if the script app which you use on your internet site enables you to do such things. The two libraries can easily be used with many website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etc., and support more than one hundred popular image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and others.
