ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick used for? What exactly is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server for images to appear on a certain website. They allow you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to only one language to create your site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
