PHP modules/extensions include improvements to things such as site performance, user-experience, and more. The imagick is an optional PHP extension that creates and modify images using the ImageMagick API. ImageMagick is a software suite to create, edit, and compose bitmap (vector and raster) images. It can read, write, and convert images in over 100 formats such as JPEG 2000, GIF, PNG, JPEG, DPX, EXR, SVG, TIFF, and many more.
