ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick intended for? What precisely is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide popularity?
ImageMagick and GD are two of the most popular graphic software libraries available on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site doable, so they should be available on a web server if you host your websites on it and you prefer to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are set up, you shall be able to edit any image in many different ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etc. Naturally, these modifications are feasible if the script application which you employ on your site allows you to perform such things. The two libraries could be used with numerous website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support more than 100 widely used image formats which you shall be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
