They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site doable, so they need to be present on a server if you host your websites on it and you prefer to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions.

The 2 libraries could be used with numerous website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support more than one hundred frequently used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and others.
