If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it must have the appropriate software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be installed on a hosting server and which work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based app that you'd like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Website Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and enabled by default on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, which means that your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux website hosting that you select when you join us. This will allow you to create interactive websites without worrying about any sort of tech limitations on our end. If you have a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while when you've got a social network or a similar site that engages your visitors in some way, you are able to provide them with a number of editing options for the photographs that they upload. In addition, you can convert text to images, which will give you lots of opportunities as to what content you can offer on your site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to execute any kind of script application that requires GD Library or ImageMagick to generate graphs or use images, because both are installed and enabled as standard on the cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Even though you may get new PHP version for your account, you won't need to do anything in order to re-enable these libraries because they'll be available at all times. Thus, you will have a lot of options in respect to what functions both you and your site visitors will be able to use, regardless if you're writing the site code yourself, you employ one of our pre-installed script apps or you download and set up some application that you have found online. You're able to use all the sought-after formats for the images which you upload.
