ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a particular site. They permit you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily 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 which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to just one language to build your website. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
