ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick employed for? What exactly is the GD Library? What lies behind their worldwide popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server to enable images to appear on a particular website. They permit you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be carried out 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 upon the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to create your website. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
