ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server for images to appear on a given website. They permit you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to develop your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled as standard on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them irrespective of the Linux shared service that you select when you sign up. This will help you create interactive websites without having to worry about any sort of tech restrictions on our end. In case you have a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while in case you've got a social network or a similar website that engages the guests in some way, you'll be able to offer them a number of editing solutions for the pictures which they upload. You can also convert text to images, which provides you with lots of opportunities regarding what content you'll be able to offer on your site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we provide includes ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you upgrade the PHP version which is being used by your account, so you will not need to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script application that you use has inbuilt options to work with images and charts, it will function perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've discovered it online, if it's a part of the script library which you can access using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. When you use our services, you will be able to create multi-media image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
