ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widely used graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a website doable, so they should be set up on a server if you host your websites on it and you prefer 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 many different ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. However, these modifications are possible if the script app which you use on your internet site allows you to do such things. The 2 libraries can be used with various website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etc., and support over one hundred popular image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
