ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widespread graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a website feasible, so they must be present on a web server if you host your sites on it and you prefer to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you will be able to edit any image in various ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera.
