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 doable, so they must be installed on a server if you host your internet sites on it and you want to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are set up, you will be able to edit any image in many different ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so forth. Of course, these adjustments are feasible if the script application that you use on your internet site enables you to carry out such things. The 2 libraries can easily be used with numerous web development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support over a hundred commonly used image formats which you will be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and others.
