ImageMagick and GD Library
Discover what ImageMagick is as well as what the GD Library is utilized for and why they are so popular.
If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it must have the correct software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be set up on a server and which work with a lot of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based application you want, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting
Our custom cloud server platform will provide the perfect software setting for all your sites regardless of the content that you would like to have. Galleries as well as all other types of sites which employ images and charts are not an exception as ImageMagick and GD Library are available with all of the Linux shared hosting packages
that we provide. Your account will be set up on the cloud hosting platform and no matter which PHP version you would like to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will always be enabled by default, not on demand. If the script app which you use offers such functions, you will be able to manage images from the admin area, while your site visitors will be able to do that using the front end of the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the semi-dedicated server
accounts are created, you will not have any problems to run any kind of script application which needs these libraries in order to operate properly. A lot of applications allow you to use charts and pictures - discussion boards, cms, blog platforms, and many others, thus if you work with such software on our end, you're able to use all of its functions - automatically generated thumbnails for pictures linked to a forum reply or customizable avatars on a social network website, for example. The two libraries are provided with all the PHP versions that you can select from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
