ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to appear on a given website. They enable you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily 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 show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to build your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and activated by default on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux shared hosting package that you select when you register. This will allow you to set up interactive websites without worrying about any sort of technical restrictions on our end. In case you have a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while if you've got a social network or a similar website which engages your guests in some way, you're able to provide them with various editing solutions for the images they upload. Also, you can convert text to images, which will provide you with various opportunities regarding what content you're able to offer on your website.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server plan that we offer features ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you upgrade the PHP version which is being used by your account, therefore you will not need to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script application which you use has in-built features to use images and charts, it will function flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've found it online, if it's a part of the script library which you're able to access from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch. When you use our services, you are able to build interactive image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
