Can any one explain what is the use of GD2 and ImageMagick while uploading images in backend in magento 2.

1 Answer 1


ImageMagick delivers better quality images on front end. It may however slow the loading of your pages. I do not believe that it has any relation/affect on uploading images via the Admin.
