ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server for images to show up on a particular website. They permit you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could 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 depending upon the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to develop your site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated by default on our revolutionary cloud hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the shared hosting service that you select when you register. This will allow you to build multimedia websites without having to worry about any sort of tech limitations on our end. If you own a portfolio website, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images that show your work, while when you own a social network or a similar website that engages the guests in some way, you're able to provide them with various editing solutions for the photos that they upload. You can also convert text to images, which gives you lots of opportunities regarding what content you'll be able to offer on your site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each semi-dedicated server plan that we offer comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you change the PHP version that is being used by your account, which means that you will not need to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script application which you use has built-in options to work with pictures and graphs, it will function flawlessly on our servers, regardless of whether you've obtained it online, if it is a part of the script library which you can access using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own. With our services, you can generate multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
