ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most widespread graphic software libraries available. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on an internet site feasible, so they need to be installed on a server if you host your websites on it and you would want to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are installed, you will be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. However, these adjustments are possible if the script application that you use on your website enables you to do such things. The two libraries can easily be used with a lot of website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support over a hundred popular image formats that you will be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
