If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it must have the appropriate software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based app you'd like, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Website Hosting
ImageMagick and GD Library are installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, therefore no matter which of our Linux website hosting service
you obtain, both apps will be available and enabled by default for your brand new account. They are a part of the software environment for your websites regardless of the PHP version that you choose since we supply several different releases. Each custom or ready-made script application will be able to use the libraries in order to generate thumbnails of your images or graphs from plain text. Based on the type of your website, you will also be able to offer a number of options for your visitors - interactive galleries, real-time image editing software on a social network site and many more.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server
plan that we offer comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you switch the PHP version that is being used by your account, therefore you won't need to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app that you employ has inbuilt features to use images and charts, it'll work perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've acquired it online, if it's part of the script library that you're able to access using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. Using our services, you can make multi-media image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
