ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick employed for? What exactly is the GD Library? What is the reason for their popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server for images to show up on a specific site. They permit you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be done 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 that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to only one language to develop your site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
