ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widely used graphic software libraries nowadays. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site feasible, so they should be present on a web server if you host your websites on it and you would like to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions.

The 2 libraries can be used with many web development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etc., and support over one hundred popular image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many others.
