ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widely used graphic software libraries on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site feasible, so they should be set up on a server if you host your internet sites on it and you want to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you'll be able to edit any image in various ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. However, these modifications are possible if the script application that you use on your site enables you to perform such things. The 2 libraries could be used with various programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support over 100 widely used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many others.
