ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick employed for? What is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide popularity?
If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it needs to have the correct software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be installed on a hosting server and that work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based application you want, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with more than a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
