ImageMagick and GD Library
Discover more about ImageMagick and GD Library and discover why they are currently present on almost every server.
If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it should have the suitable software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a hosting server and which work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based application you want, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
