ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a certain internet site. They permit you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things could be done 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with lots of web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to only one language to develop your website. They work with over 100 formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Web Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and enabled by default on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform, so your scripts can use them whatever the shared web hosting that you select when you sign up. This will help you build interactive sites without having to worry about any technical restrictions on our end. When you own a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while when you've got a social network or a similar site which engages your visitors in some way, you can offer them various editing solutions for the pictures they upload. Also, you can convert text to images, which will give you various opportunities regarding what content you can offer on the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server package that we offer includes ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you upgrade the PHP version which is being used by your account, so you won't need to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app that you use has built-in options to use images and charts, it will function perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've acquired it online, if it is a part of the script library that you can access from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. Using our services, you'll be able to build multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
