If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be set up on a hosting server and which work with a lot of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you can use images with any web-based app you want, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and enabled by default on our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts can use them regardless of the cloud hosting that you select when you register. This will help you build interactive sites without worrying about any kind of technical limitations on our end. When you own a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images that show your work, while when you've got a social network or a similar site that engages your visitors in some way, you'll be able to offer them a number of editing solutions for the photos that they upload. You can also convert text to images, that will provide you with quite a lot of opportunities regarding what content you'll be able to offer on your site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we supply 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, which means that you won't have to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app which you use has in-built features to work with images and graphs, it will work flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've obtained it online, if it's part of the script library that you're able to access from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. Using our services, you're able to make multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
