If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it must have the proper software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be installed on a web server and that work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based application you'd like, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with over 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Website Hosting

All of the Linux cloud website hosting that we provide are created on our cutting-edge cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on it, your script apps can use these software suites any time. The libraries can be found with all PHP versions that we supply because we support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5. No matter if you employ a custom-made script, one of the applications which you will be able to install through the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party app that you find on the Internet, you will be able to build feature-rich multimedia websites, for instance image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and your visitors can work with graphs as well as images in real time as long as the script features such functionality.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to execute any kind of script application that requires GD Library or ImageMagick to make graphs or work with images, because both are set up and activated by default on the cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. In case you change the PHP version for your account, you won't have to do anything to re-enable these libraries as they'll be accessible all of the time. This way, you will have a lot of options in respect to what functions both you and your site visitors can employ, regardless if you write the website code yourself, you employ one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and install some app which you've found on the Internet. You can use all sought-after formats for the images which you upload.
