ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick suitable for? What exactly is the GD Library? What lies behind their worldwide popularity?
If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for this. Rather than 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 may even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be installed on a server and which work with a great number of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based application you'd like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
