If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the server where you host it must have the appropriate software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be set up on a web server and that work with a great number of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Website Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled by default on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them irrespective of the Linux cloud website hosting service that you select when you register. This will help you build interactive websites without having to worry about any tech limitations on our end. When you have a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images which show your work, while in case you have a social network or a similar website which engages the guests in some way, you are able to provide them with various editing solutions for the pictures they upload. You can also convert text to pictures, which will give you many different opportunities as to what content you are able to offer on your site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we provide includes ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you change the PHP version that is being used by your account, which means that you will not have to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script app which you employ has built-in features to use images and charts, it'll work flawlessly on our servers, regardless of whether you've discovered it online, if it's a part of the script library which you're able to access from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. With our services, you will be able to create multi-media image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
