ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick suitable for? What exactly is the GD Library? What is the reason for their popularity?
If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the web server in which you host it should have the correct software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be installed on a hosting server and that work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
