ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most popular graphic software libraries available. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site feasible, so they should be installed on a web server if you host your internet sites on it and you prefer to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions.

The 2 libraries could be used with a lot of web development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera., and support over a hundred commonly used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
