ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick employed for? What exactly is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide recognition?
If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the server where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be set up on a web server and which work with a large amount of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app that you would like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with more than 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
