ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick intended for? What precisely is the GD Library? What is the reason for their global recognition?
If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the server where you host it must have the suitable software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a site visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which could be set up on a hosting server and that work with a wide range of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application you want, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server
plan that we provide includes ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you upgrade the PHP version that is in use by your account, so you will not have to re-enable anything manually if you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app that you employ has built-in features to use images and graphs, it'll function perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've found it online, if it's a part of the script library which you're able to access from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch. Using our services, you can make multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
