ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn what ImageMagick is as well as what the GD Library is used for and why they are so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most widespread graphic software libraries nowadays. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a website possible, so they must be present on a web server if you host your internet sites on it and you would like to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you'll be able to edit any image in various ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so forth. However, these tweaks are feasible if the script application which you employ on your website enables you to do such things. The 2 libraries can easily be used with numerous website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support more than a hundred frequently used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
