ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a particular site. They permit you to carry out a variety of 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 appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to just one language to create your internet site. They work with more than 100 formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Web Hosting
All Linux cloud web hosting which we offer are set up on our modern cloud platform and due to the fact that both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on it, your script apps will be able to use these software suites at any time. The libraries are available with all the PHP versions that we supply as we support PHP 4 and a number of versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you employ a tailor-made script, one of the applications that you're able to install from the Hepsia Control Panel or a third-party app that you find on the web, you are able to build feature-rich multi-media sites, for instance image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and your visitors can work with graphs and / or images in real time as long as the script has such options.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we offer includes ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you switch the PHP version that is in use by your account, so you won't need to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app which you use has in-built features to use pictures and charts, it will work perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've found it online, if it is a part of the script library which you can access using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. Using our services, you are able to build interactive image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
