ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out more about ImageMagick and GD Library and discover why they are now present on almost every server.
If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it needs to have the proper software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images through a script app. All of these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be installed on a hosting server and that work with a great number of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based app you'd like, regardless what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Website Hosting
Our tailor-made cloud server platform will supply the best software setting for all of your sites whatever the content that you wish to have. Galleries as well as all other kinds of websites that use images and charts are not an exception because ImageMagick and GD Library can be found with all of the Linux website hosting
that we provide. Your account will be set up on our cloud website hosting platform and regardless of which PHP version you'd like to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will always be enabled by default, not on demand. Given that the script application that you are using offers such functions, you will be able to manage images from the administrative section, while the site visitors will be able to do this by using the front end of your site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because both GD Library and ImageMagick are set up on the cloud hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server
accounts are created, you will not experience any problems to run any kind of script application that requires these libraries in order to function efficiently. A lot of apps allow you to work with charts and images - forums, content management systems, blog platforms, etcetera, so if you employ such software on our end, you're able to use all of its features - automatically generated thumbnails for pictures attached to a forum reply or personalized avatars on a social network website, for example. The two libraries will be provided with all the PHP versions that you are able to select from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
