ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick employed for? What is the GD Library? What lies behind their popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a given internet site. They allow you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to create your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
