ImageMagick and GD are two of the most frequently used graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site feasible, so they should be present on a server if you host your websites on it and you want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are set up, you will be able to edit any image in various ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etc. However, these tweaks are possible if the script app which you employ on your site enables you to do such things. The two libraries can easily be used with many website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, etcetera., and support more than a hundred widely used image formats which you will be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and many more.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Website Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled as standard on our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them regardless of the cloud website hosting that you select when you sign up. This will help you set up interactive sites without having to worry about any kind of technical restrictions on our end. In case you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images that show your work, while when you've got a social network or a similar website which engages the visitors in some way, you'll be able to provide them with a variety of editing options for the photos they upload. You can also convert text to images, which will give you lots of opportunities as to what content you'll be able to offer on the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server package that we supply is provided with ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you upgrade the PHP version which is being used by your account, which means that you won't need to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app which you employ has in-built features to use pictures and charts, it will work perfectly on our servers, regardless of whether you've found it online, if it's part of the script library that you can access using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. When you use our services, you'll be able to generate multi-media image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
