ImageMagick and GD Library
Find what ImageMagick is and what the GD Library is used for and why they are so popular.
ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widespread graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site possible, so they should be installed on a web server if you host your sites on it and you prefer to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are installed, you will be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. However, these adjustments are feasible if the script application which you use on your internet site permits you to carry out such things. The 2 libraries can easily be used with various web development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support over a hundred commonly used image formats which you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
