ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most widely used graphic software libraries nowadays. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a website possible, so they should be installed on a web 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 set up, you will be able to edit any image in various ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so on. However, these tweaks are feasible if the script app that you employ on your internet site permits you to perform such things. The two libraries could be used with many web development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etc., and support more than one hundred widely used image formats that you shall be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many others.
