If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it must have the proper software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be set up on a server and that work with a large amount of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based app that you would 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 like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and activated as standard on our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them whatever the Linux hosting plan that you select when you sign up. This will help you build multimedia websites without worrying about any kind of technical restrictions on our end. When you have a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while in case you've got a social network or a similar site that engages your guests in some way, you can provide them with various editing solutions for the images which they upload. Also, you can convert text to pictures, which will give you a number of opportunities with regards to what content you'll be able to offer on the site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we supply features ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you change the PHP version which is in use by your account, therefore you won't need 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 that you employ has inbuilt features to use pictures and charts, it will function perfectly on our servers, regardless of whether you've found it online, if it is a part of the script library which you can access using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch. With our services, you'll be able to make multi-media image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
