ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server in order for images to show up on a particular website. They enable you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to develop your internet site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated by default on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux cloud hosting package that you select when you register. This will allow you to create multimedia sites without worrying about any kind of tech restrictions on our end. If you have a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images which show your work, while in case you have a social network or a similar site which engages the guests in some way, you can offer them a number of editing options for the images they upload. Also, you can convert text to images, that will provide you with various opportunities regarding what content you're able to offer on the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we provide comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you upgrade the PHP version that is being used by your account, so you will not need to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script app that you use has inbuilt options to work with pictures and graphs, it'll work flawlessly on our servers, regardless if you've acquired it online, if it's a part of the script library that you are able to access from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. Using our services, you will be able to build multi-media image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
