ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server for images to show up on a given website. They permit you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be done online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution which the website visitor is using.

They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
