ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server in order for images to show up on a given site. They allow you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly be done online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with a lot of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to create your website. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
