ImageMagick and GD Library
Uncover what ImageMagick is and what the GD Library is utilized for and why they are so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a specific internet site. They allow you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be carried out 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to one particular language to develop your site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
