ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to appear on a given site. They enable you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you include 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 depending upon the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to a single language to create your website. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting
All web hosting plans which we supply are created on our advanced cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications will be able to use these software suites at any time. The libraries are available with all of the PHP versions that we provide because we support PHP 4 and several versions of PHP 5. No matter if you work with a custom script, one of the apps that you'll be able to install through the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party app that you find online, you will be able to build feature-rich multimedia websites, such as image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the visitors will be able to work with graphs and images in real time as long as the script offers such options.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
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 switch the PHP version that is in use by your account, therefore you won't have to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app that you use has built-in options to work with images and charts, it will function flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've found it online, if it is part of the script library that you will be able to access from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. Using our services, you are able to make multi-media image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
