If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server in which you host it must have the proper software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be set up on a hosting server and which work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based app you want, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and enabled as standard on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts can use them irrespective of the shared hosting service that you select when you sign up. This will help you create multimedia websites without having to worry about any kind of tech limitations on our end. In case you have a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while when you've got a social network or a similar site that engages the guests in some way, you're able to provide them with a number of editing options for the pictures which they upload. You can also convert text to images, which gives you various opportunities as to what content you can offer on your site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server package that we supply is provided with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you switch the PHP version that is being used by your account, so you won't have to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app which you employ has inbuilt options to use pictures and charts, it'll function flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've found it online, if it's part of the script library which you can access from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. When you use our services, you will be able to create multi-media image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
