ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server for images to show up on a certain site. They permit you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can certainly be done online and in real time, so if you include 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 upon the device and resolution which the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to build your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated by default on our innovative cloud hosting platform, so your scripts can use them regardless of the cloud hosting that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to create multimedia sites without worrying about any technical limitations on our end. In case you own a portfolio site, for example, 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 your guests in some way, you're able to provide them with various editing options for the images they upload. Also, you can convert text to pictures, that provides you with quite a lot of opportunities as to what content you will be able to offer on your site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can run every script application that requires GD Library or ImageMagick to generate charts or work with images, because both are set up and enabled as standard on the cloud website hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Even though you may change the PHP version for your account, you won't need to do anything to re-enable these libraries as they'll be accessible all the time. In this way, you've got a lot of options in respect to what attributes you and your website visitors can employ, no matter if you are writing the website code yourself, you employ one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and install some app that you've found on the web. You are able to take advantage of all sought-after formats for the images which you upload.
