ImageMagick and GD are two 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 must be available on a web server if you host your websites on it and you 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 different ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so forth. Needless to say, these changes are possible if the script application that you employ on your site allows you to do such things. The 2 libraries can easily be used with a lot of website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera., and support over 100 frequently used image formats that you shall be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
