ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server in order for images to show up on a given site. They allow you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on.

They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
