ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is used for and why they are so well liked.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a given website. They enable you to carry out various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can certainly be carried out online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to just one language to develop your site. They work with over one hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Website Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and enabled by default on our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux website hosting
that you select when you sign up. This will help you create interactive sites without having to worry about any sort of tech restrictions on our end. In case you own a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while if you've got a social network or a similar website which engages the guests in some way, you can offer them a number of editing options for the images which they upload. You can also convert text to images, which will give you quite a lot of opportunities with regards to what content you are able to offer on the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server
package that we provide features 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 in use by your account, which means that you will not need to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app that you use has inbuilt options to use images and graphs, it'll function perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've found it online, if it's part of the script library which you'll be able to access through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. With our services, you can create interactive image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
