ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library can be used for and why they are so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a server to enable images to show up on a particular website. They enable you to execute a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can certainly be performed 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 the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to one particular language to create your website. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting
All of the web hosting
which we provide are created on our leading-edge cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on it, your script applications will be able to use these software suites at any time. The libraries are accessible with all of the PHP versions that we supply as we support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5. No matter if you work with a custom-made script, one of the applications which you can install through the Hepsia Control Panel or a third-party app that you find on the web, you will be able to build feature-rich multimedia websites, for instance image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and your users will be able to work with charts and images in real time provided the script offers such options.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server
package that we provide is provided with ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you change the PHP version that is being used by your account, therefore you will not have to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script application which you employ has built-in options to work with pictures and charts, it'll function perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've discovered it online, if it is part of the script library that you can access using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. With our services, you'll be able to make multi-media image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
