If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it should have the appropriate software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that may be set up on a server and that work with a large amount of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based application that you would like, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and enabled by default on our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them whatever the hosting plan that you select when you join us. This will allow you to build interactive sites without worrying about any tech restrictions on our end. If you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images which show your work, while when you own a social network or a similar website that engages the visitors in some way, you are able to offer them a variety of editing solutions for the photos which they upload. You can also convert text to images, which gives you many different opportunities regarding what content you'll be able to offer on the website.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server plan that we supply is provided with ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you switch the PHP version that is being used by your account, so you won't have to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script application which you employ has inbuilt features to work with pictures and graphs, it'll work perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've obtained it online, if it's part of the script library which you'll be able to access through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. When you use our services, you'll be able to build multi-media image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
