If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it must have the correct software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a server and that work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Website Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated as standard on our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them irrespective of the Linux website hosting service that you select when you register. This will help you set up interactive websites without worrying about any kind of tech limitations on our end. If you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while in case you've got a social network or a similar website that engages the visitors in some way, you will be able to provide them with various editing solutions for the images that they upload. Also, you can convert text to images, which will give you various opportunities as to what content you're able to offer on your website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because both GD Library and ImageMagick are set up on the cloud hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created, you will not experience any problems to run any kind of script application that needs these libraries in order to work efficiently. A number of apps allow you to work with charts and images - discussion boards, content management systems, blog platforms, etc, so if you work with such software on our end, you'll be able to use all of its functions - automatically generated thumbnails for images attached to a forum reply or easy to customize avatars on a social network site, for example. Both libraries will be available with all the PHP releases which you're able to select from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
