ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server to enable images to appear on a particular website.

Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to build your website. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
