ImageMagick and GD are two of the most popular graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site doable, so they need to be present on a server if you host your internet sites on it and you want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are set up, you'll be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera.

The 2 libraries can be used with various programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera., and support more than 100 widely used image formats which you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
