If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it should have the appropriate software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that may be installed on a server and which work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based app you'd like, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled as standard on our innovative cloud hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux hosting that you select when you register. This will allow you to create multimedia sites without worrying about any kind of tech limitations on our end. In case you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while if you have a social network or a similar site that engages the visitors in some way, you're able to provide them with a variety of editing solutions for the images they upload. Also, you can convert text to pictures, that will provide you with various opportunities regarding what content you'll be able to offer on the site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we offer is provided with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you change the PHP version which is being used by your account, so you will not have to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script app which you employ has inbuilt features to work with images and graphs, it'll work perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've discovered it online, if it is a part of the script library which you are able to access using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. With our services, you can generate interactive image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
