ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick suitable for? What is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server in order for images to show up on a particular internet site. They enable you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily 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 appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to develop your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting
All Linux web hosting plans
which we offer are generated on our modern cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications can use these software suites any time. The libraries are available with all the PHP versions that we supply as we support PHP 4 and a few different versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you work with a tailor-made script, one of the applications that you can install from the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party app that you find on the web, you'll be able to build feature-rich interactive websites, such as image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the visitors will be able to work with graphs as well as images in real time as long as the script offers such functionality.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server
plan that we provide includes ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you change the PHP version that is in use by your account, so you will not need to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script application which you use has inbuilt features to work with images and graphs, it'll work perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've acquired it online, if it's part of the script library that you can access using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. Using our services, you'll be able to make multimedia image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
