ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server for images to show up on a given website. They allow you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth.

They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
