ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick suitable for? What exactly is the GD Library? What lies behind their global popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widely used graphic software libraries nowadays. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site possible, so they need to be present on a server if you host your sites on it and you want to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are set up, you will be able to edit any image in many different ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. Naturally, these adjustments are feasible if the script application which you employ on your website enables you to do such things. The two libraries could be used with various programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support over 100 frequently used image formats that you will be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
