If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the machine where you host it needs to have the correct software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be set up on a hosting server and which work with a wide range of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and enabled as standard on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform, which means that your scripts will be able to use them whatever the Linux shared hosting package that you select when you register. This will allow you to build interactive sites without worrying about any kind of tech restrictions on our end. If you own a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images that show your work, while in case you've got a social network or a similar website that engages the guests in some way, you can provide them with a variety of editing options for the pictures they upload. In addition, you can convert text to images, that provides you with quite a lot of opportunities with regards to what content you're able to offer on the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we supply comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you change the PHP version which is in use by your account, so you will not need to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script application that you employ has built-in features to work with pictures and graphs, it'll function perfectly on our servers, regardless of whether you've acquired it online, if it is a part of the script library that you're able to access through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. When you use our services, you will be able to build multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
