ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick intended for? What is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are two of the most frequently used graphic software libraries on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site doable, so they should be present on a server if you host your internet sites on it and you want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you'll be able to edit any image in many different ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. Needless to say, these changes are feasible if the script app that you employ on your website enables you to do such things. The two libraries can easily be used with many programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support over a hundred popular image formats which you shall be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and others.
