ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most frequently used graphic software libraries available on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site feasible, so they should be installed on a web server if you host your websites on it and you would want to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you shall be able to edit any image in many ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so forth.

The two libraries can be used with a lot of programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support over one hundred frequently used image formats which you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
