ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to show up on a certain website. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can 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 appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to build your site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
