ImageMagick and GD Library
Uncover what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library can be used for and why they are so well liked.
If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server in which you host it ought to have the appropriate software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script app. All of these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be set up on a web server and which work with a great number of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
