ImageMagick and GD are two of the most frequently used graphic software libraries available. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site feasible, so they should be set up on a server if you host your internet sites on it and you would want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are installed, you shall be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so on. Needless to say, these adjustments are possible if the script application which you use on your site permits you to do such things. The two libraries can easily be used with different web development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera., and support more than 100 commonly used image formats that you will be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many others.
