ImageMagick and GD are two of the most frequently used graphic software libraries nowadays. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site doable, so they should 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 present, you will be able to edit any image in various ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etc. Naturally, these adjustments are possible if the script application that you employ on your internet site enables you to carry out such things. The two libraries can easily be used with a lot of website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etc., and support over one hundred frequently used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
