If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the server where you host it must have the correct software for this. Rather than 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 can even flip and invert images via a script app. All of these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can 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 that you would like, regardless of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and enabled as standard on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, which means that your scripts will be able to use them whatever the shared website hosting plan that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to set up interactive sites without having to worry about any kind of tech restrictions on our end. When you own a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while if you own a social network or a similar website that engages the guests in some way, you are able to provide them with a number of editing solutions for the photos which they upload. In addition, you can convert text to pictures, which provides you with a number of opportunities as to what content you will be able to offer on the site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on the cloud platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created, you won't experience any problems to run any sort of script app which needs these libraries in order to function efficiently. Numerous applications allow you to use graphs and pictures - community forums, cms, blog platforms, etcetera, thus in case you use such software on our end, you can use all of its attributes - automatically generated thumbnails for pictures linked to a forum reply or customizable avatars on a social network website, for example. Both libraries are provided with all of the PHP releases which you can select from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2.
