ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most widely used graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site doable, so they ought to be available on a server if you host your internet sites on it and you would want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are installed, you'll be able to edit any image in many ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so on. Needless to say, these tweaks are possible if the script app that you use on your website permits you to carry out such things. The 2 libraries could be used with various programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera., and support more than one hundred widely used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and others.
