ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server for images to appear on a particular site. They allow you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can be done online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to one particular language to create your site. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
