ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a given website. They allow you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can be done 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 with regards to the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to a single language to create your site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Website Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and enabled as standard on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, so your scripts can use them regardless of the website hosting that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to set up multimedia sites without worrying about any tech restrictions on our end. When you own a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while when you own a social network or a similar site that engages your visitors in some way, you can offer them a number of editing options for the photographs they upload. You can also convert text to pictures, that will provide you with many different opportunities as to what content you will be able to offer on your website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server plan that we offer includes ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you change the PHP version that is being used by your account, which means that you will not have to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script app which you employ has built-in features to work with images and charts, it will function flawlessly on our servers, regardless if you've discovered it online, if it is part of the script library that you'll be able to access from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. With our services, you will be able to generate interactive image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
