If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the web server where you host it needs to have the correct software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up on a hosting server and which work with a lot of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based app you want, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over a hundred different image formats including 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 state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them whatever the shared website hosting service that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to set up interactive sites without having to worry about any technical limitations on our end. When you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while when you own a social network or a similar site that engages your visitors in some way, you can provide them with a number of editing options for the photographs they upload. Also, you can convert text to pictures, which gives you a number of opportunities as to what content you're able to offer on the website.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we provide comes with 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, which means that you won't need to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script app that you employ has inbuilt features to work with images and graphs, it'll work flawlessly on our servers, regardless of whether you've found it online, if it is part of the script library that you'll be able to access through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. Using our services, you are able to generate multi-media image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
