If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine in which you host it must have the correct software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be set up on a hosting server and which work with a lot of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based app that you'd like, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and activated by default on our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux cloud hosting that you select when you register. This will allow you to build multimedia sites without having to worry about any sort of tech limitations on our end. When you have a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while in case you own a social network or a similar site that engages your visitors in some way, you're able to offer them various editing options for the photos that they upload. In addition, you can convert text to images, that will give you a number of opportunities regarding what content you can offer on your website.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because both GD Library and ImageMagick are set up on the cloud platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created, you will not have any problems to run any kind of script app that requires these libraries in order to function properly. A lot of apps allow you to use graphs and pictures - message boards, cms, blog platforms, and many others, thus if you employ such software on our end, you'll be able to use all of its features - automatically generated thumbnails for images linked to a forum reply or personalized avatars on a social network site, for example. Both libraries will be available with all the PHP releases that you will be able to select through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
