ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is used for and why they are so well liked.
If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine in which you host it must have the appropriate software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be set up on a hosting server and which work with a great number of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based app you want, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
