If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it ought to have the appropriate software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you could 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 application. All these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a web server and that work with a large amount of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and activated as standard on our innovative cloud hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them whatever the web hosting plan that you select when you sign up. This will help you set up interactive websites without worrying about any tech restrictions on our end. In case you have a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images that show your work, while when you have 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 pictures they upload. In addition, you can convert text to pictures, which provides you with lots of opportunities with regards to what content you will be able to offer on the site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Each semi-dedicated server package that we provide includes ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you switch the PHP version that is being used by your account, which means that you won't have to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script app which you use has inbuilt options to use images and graphs, it'll work perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've obtained 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 wrote it on your own. When you use our services, you'll be able to create multi-media image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
