ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick used for? What precisely is the GD Library? What lies behind their global recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server to enable images to show up on a given internet site. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to create your website. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled by default on our revolutionary cloud hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them irrespective of the Linux shared website hosting service
that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to build multimedia websites without having to worry about any technical limitations on our end. If you have a portfolio website, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images which show your work, while if you own a social network or a similar site that engages the guests in some way, you'll be able to offer them various editing options for the photographs which they upload. You can also convert text to pictures, that provides you with many different opportunities regarding what content you'll be able to offer on your website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server
plan that we provide is provided with ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. 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 will not have to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app which you employ has in-built options to work with images and graphs, it'll function perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've discovered it online, if it is a part of the script library which you can access through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. When you use our services, you will be able to build interactive image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
