ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server in order for images to show up on a given website. They enable you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to create your site. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
