ImageMagick and GD Library
Uncover what ImageMagick is as well as what the GD Library is utilized for and why they are so popular.
ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most frequently used graphic software libraries nowadays. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site possible, so they should be available on a web server if you host your websites on it and you want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions.

However, these tweaks are doable if the script application that you use on your website allows you to perform such things. The two libraries can easily be used with many website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support more than 100 widely used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
