ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a server in order for images to show up on a specific website. They allow you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution that the website visitor is using.
