ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most popular graphic software libraries nowadays. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site possible, so they should be present on a web server if you host your sites on it and you would like to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are installed, you'll be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so forth. Needless to say, these changes are possible if the script app which you employ on your website permits you to perform such things. The 2 libraries could be used with different website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support more than a hundred popular image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
