ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a certain internet site. They allow you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to build your site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated as standard on our revolutionary cloud hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux hosting package that you select when you register. This will help you set up interactive websites without having to worry about any tech restrictions on our end. In case you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while if you've got a social network or a similar website that engages the guests in some way, you're able to offer them a variety of editing options for the photographs they upload. In addition, you can convert text to pictures, that will give you numerous opportunities regarding what content you're able to offer on your site.
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 of the time even if you change the PHP version that is in use by your account, which means that you won't have to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app which you employ has inbuilt options to use images and graphs, it'll work flawlessly on our servers, regardless of whether you've discovered it online, if it's part of the script library that you are able to access from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch. Using our services, you will be able to build multimedia image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
