ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a specific website. They allow you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the site visitor is using.
