If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine in which you host it should have the appropriate software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be installed on a web server and which work with a wide range of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based app that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Website Hosting

All of the Linux website hosting that we offer are set up on our modern cloud platform and due to the fact that both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications can use these software suites any time. The libraries are available with all the PHP versions that we supply because we support PHP 4 and a few different versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you work with a custom-made script, one of the applications that you'll be able to install through the Hepsia Control Panel or a third-party application that you find on the worldwide web, you will be able to build feature-rich multi-media websites, including image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the visitors can work with charts as well as images in real time provided that the script features such options.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to execute any script application which requires GD Library or ImageMagick to create graphs or work with images, because both are installed and activated as standard on the cloud hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Even if you switch the PHP version for your account, you won't have to do anything in order to re-enable these libraries because they'll be accessible all of the time. This way, you'll have loads of alternatives in respect to what functions both you and your site visitors will be able to use, no matter if you're writing the site code yourself, you use one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and set up some application that you've found on the Internet. You'll be able to employ all the sought-after formats for the pictures which you upload.
