ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widely used graphic software libraries on the market. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a website feasible, so they need to be set up on a server if you host your 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 many different ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. Needless to say, these modifications are feasible if the script app that you employ on your internet site enables you to perform such things. The 2 libraries can easily be used with a lot of website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera., and support over a hundred commonly used image formats which you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and others.
