ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick suitable for? What is the GD Library? What lies behind their worldwide recognition?
If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine where you host it must have the correct software for that. 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 app. All of these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be set up on a server and that work with a large amount of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app you'd like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with over one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting
All the Linux shared website hosting packages
which we provide are generated on our hi-tech cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications can use these software suites at any time. The libraries can be found with all the PHP versions that we provide since we support PHP 4 and a couple of versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you employ a tailor-made script, one of the applications which you're able to install through the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party app that you find on the Internet, you'll be able to build feature-rich multi-media sites, like image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the visitors will be able to work with charts and / or images in real time provided that the script features such functionality.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can execute any kind of script app which requires GD Library or ImageMagick to create graphs or work with images, since both are installed and enabled as standard on the cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created. In case you switch the PHP version for your account, you will not have to do anything to re-enable these libraries because they'll be accessible all of the time. Thus, you'll have numerous options in respect to what functions both you and your site visitors shall be able to use, regardless of whether you write the website code yourself, you use one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and set up some app that you have found on the worldwide web. You'll be able to use all the sought-after formats for the pictures which you upload.
