ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick used for? What precisely is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widely used graphic software libraries available on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a website possible, so they must 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 set up, you will be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etc. Naturally, these changes are possible if the script app that you employ on your website permits you to carry out such things. The two libraries can be used with a lot of web development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support more than a hundred frequently used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many others.
