ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most widespread graphic software libraries available on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site possible, so they should be set up on a server if you host your sites on it and you prefer to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you will be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etc. Of course, these modifications are possible if the script app that you use on your website enables you to do such things. The 2 libraries can be used with different website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support over a hundred commonly used image formats that you will be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
