If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server where you host it needs to have the suitable software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be set up on a web server and that work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based app that you would like, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and enabled as standard on our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them regardless of the hosting that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to build interactive sites without worrying about any sort of technical limitations on our end. If you own a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images which show your work, while when you've got a social network or a similar site which engages your guests in some way, you are able to provide them with a number of editing options for the photographs they upload. You can also convert text to pictures, that will provide you with lots of opportunities regarding what content you can offer on your website.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we provide is provided with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you upgrade the PHP version that is being used by your account, which means that you won't have to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app that you use has in-built options to use pictures and graphs, it'll function perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've found it online, if it is part of the script library which you are able to access through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. Using our services, you are able to make multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
