ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is as well as what the GD Library can be used for and why they're so popular.
If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it needs to have the correct software for this. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up on a hosting server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with more than 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server package that we provide includes ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you change the PHP version that is in use by your account, so you will not need to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app that you employ has in-built options to work with pictures and graphs, it'll function flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've discovered it online, if it's part of the script library which you're able to access through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch. Using our services, you can build interactive image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
