ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server for images to appear on a given site. They permit you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with many different web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to create your internet site. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting
All Linux web hosting that we provide are generated on our modern cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications can use these software suites at any time. The libraries can be found with all PHP versions that we offer since we support PHP 4 and a number of versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you employ a custom script, one of the applications that you are able to install through the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party application that you find on the Internet, you will be able to build feature-rich multimedia websites, for example image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the users can work with graphs and images in real time provided that the script offers such options.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to execute any kind of script app that requires GD Library or ImageMagick to make charts or use images, since both are set up and enabled by default on the cloud hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. In case you upgrade the PHP version for your account, you will not have to do anything in order to re-enable these libraries because they'll be accessible all the time. Thus, you will have numerous alternatives in respect to what functions both you and your site visitors can employ, regardless if you're writing the site code yourself, you employ one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and set up some app which you've found online. You're able to take advantage of all widespread formats for the images that you upload.
