ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server in order for images to show up on a specific site. They permit you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily 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 site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to just one language to develop your internet site. 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 Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated by default on our revolutionary cloud hosting platform, so your scripts can use them irrespective of the Linux shared hosting service that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to set up interactive sites without having to worry about any sort of technical limitations 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 that engages your visitors in some way, you will be able to offer them a number of editing options for the pictures they upload. Also, you can convert text to images, which will give you quite a lot of opportunities with regards to what content you are able to offer on the site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server package that we offer is provided with ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you switch the PHP version which is being used by your account, which means that you will not have to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app that you use has in-built options to work with images and graphs, it will function flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've found it online, if it is a part of the script library which you're able to access using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. When you use our services, you are able to build interactive image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
