If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it should have the proper software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be installed on a web server and which work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based application that you would like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with over one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting
ImageMagick and GD Library are installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, which means that regardless of which of our cloud service you purchase, both applications will be available and enabled by default for your brand new account. They'll be a part of the software environment for your websites irrespective of the PHP version that you choose since we provide a few different versions. Every custom or ready-made script app will be able to use the libraries so as to make thumbnails of your images or graphs from simple text. Based on the nature of your website, you can also offer a lot of options for your visitors - interactive galleries, real-time image modifying software on a social network website and many others.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server plan that we offer features ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you upgrade the PHP version that is in use by your account, so you will not have to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script app that you use has built-in options to work with images and graphs, it will function perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've discovered it online, if it is part of the script library that you can access through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. When you use our services, you'll be able to build multi-media image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
