ImageMagick and GD Library
Discover what ImageMagick is as well as what the GD Library can be used for and why they are so well liked.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server to enable images to appear on a particular internet site. They permit you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to create your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
