ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server for images to show up on a particular internet site. They enable you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you add 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 with regards to the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to develop your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Web Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated by default on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them whatever the shared web hosting plan that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to build interactive websites without having to worry about any technical restrictions on our end. When you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while if you have a social network or a similar website which engages the guests in some way, you can provide them with a number of editing solutions for the photos they upload. In addition, you can convert text to pictures, which gives you various opportunities as to what content you're able to offer on your website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer features ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you change the PHP version which is being used by your account, so you won't have to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app which you use has in-built features to use images and graphs, it will work flawlessly on our servers, regardless of whether you've acquired it online, if it is part of the script library that you can access using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. When you use our services, you can build multimedia image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
