If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server in which you host it should have the correct software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a hosting server and that work with a lot of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based app you'd like, regardless what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with more than one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and activated by default on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, so your scripts can use them regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you select when you register. This will allow you to set up interactive websites without worrying about any tech limitations on our end. If you have a portfolio website, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while in case you own a social network or a similar site which engages the visitors in some way, you will be able to provide them with a number of editing options for the photographs which they upload. Also, you can convert text to pictures, which provides you with a number of opportunities with regards to what content you can offer on your site.

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 at all times even if you upgrade 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 move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app which you employ has inbuilt options to work with images and charts, it'll function flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've discovered it online, if it's a part of the script library which you'll be able to access from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. When you use our services, you're able to make interactive image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
