ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is and what the GD Library is used for and why they are so popular.
ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most widespread graphic software libraries on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site feasible, so they need to be available on a server if you host your sites on it and you would want 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 a variety of ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. Naturally, these tweaks are possible if the script app that you use on your website allows you to perform such things. The 2 libraries can easily be used with numerous programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera., and support over 100 commonly used image formats which you will be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
