ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a web server to enable images to appear on a given website. They enable you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can 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 that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to just one language to build your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Web Hosting
All Linux cloud web hosting packages that we offer are created on our revolutionary cloud platform and due to the fact that both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications can use these software suites at any time. The libraries are accessible with all PHP versions that we supply since we support PHP 4 and a couple of versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you employ a tailor-made script, one of the applications that you can install from the Hepsia Control Panel or a third-party app that you find online, you're able to build feature-rich multimedia sites, for example image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the visitors 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 Hosting
Because both GD Library and ImageMagick are set up on the cloud hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created, you won't experience any problems to run any script application that requires these libraries to operate efficiently. A number of applications allow you to work with charts and pictures - message boards, cms, blog platforms, etcetera, therefore in case you employ such software on our end, you are able to use all of its options - automatically generated thumbnails for images attached to a forum reply or personalized avatars on a social network website, for example. Both libraries are available with all PHP releases which you are able to select from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
