ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick used for? What exactly is the GD Library? What is the reason for their recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a server for images to appear on a specific site. They enable you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to create your internet site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
