ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most widespread graphic software libraries available on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a website feasible, so they need to be available on a web server if you host your internet sites on it and you would want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are installed, you'll be able to edit any image in many ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so on. Needless to say, these tweaks are feasible if the script application that you employ on your internet site allows you to perform such things. The 2 libraries can easily be used with different 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 more.
