If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server in which you host it must have the correct software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be installed on a server and that work with a great number of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries shall allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Website Hosting

Our in-house made cloud server platform will supply the perfect software environment for all your sites whatever the content that you would like to have. Galleries as well as all other types of sites that work with images and charts are not an exception as ImageMagick and GD Library are available with all the cloud website hosting that we supply. Your account will be set up on the cloud website hosting platform and regardless of which PHP version you prefer to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will always be enabled as standard, not on demand. Given that the script app which you are using offers such options, you will be able to use images from the administrative area, while your website guests shall be able to do that using the front end of the site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can run every script app that requires GD Library or ImageMagick to generate graphs or work with images, because both are set up and activated by default on the cloud website hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. In case you get new PHP version for your account, you will not need to do anything in order to re-enable these libraries because they will be accessible all the time. In this way, you will have a number of options in respect to what features you and your site visitors can employ, regardless if you're writing the site code yourself, you employ one of our pre-installed script apps or you download and install some app that you've discovered on the web. You can use all sought-after formats for the photos which you upload.
