ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a specific website. They enable you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to just one language to build your site. They work with over one hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and enabled as standard on our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux hosting that you select when you sign up. This will help you set up multimedia websites without having to worry about any sort of tech restrictions on our end. When you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images which show your work, while in case you've got a social network or a similar website which engages your visitors in some way, you can offer them a variety of editing options for the pictures that they upload. Also, you can convert text to pictures, that gives you numerous opportunities as to what content you'll be able to offer on the website.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we supply comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you upgrade the PHP version which is being used by your account, so you will not need to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script application that you employ has built-in options to use images and graphs, it'll function perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've obtained it online, if it's a part of the script library which you can access using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. When you use our services, you'll be able to build multimedia image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
