If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server where you host it must have the suitable software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a hosting server and that work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled by default on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them irrespective of the Linux web hosting that you select when you join us. This will help you create interactive websites without worrying about any sort of technical restrictions on our end. In case you have a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while when you have a social network or a similar website that engages the guests in some way, you'll be able to offer them various editing options for the photos they upload. In addition, you can convert text to images, that will provide you with various 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 offer includes ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you upgrade the PHP version which is in use by your account, which means that you won't have to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app which you use has in-built features to use pictures and graphs, it'll function perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've obtained it online, if it's part of the script library which you can access from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. When you use our services, you can generate multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
