ImageMagick and GD Library
Uncover what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library can be used for and why they're so popular.
If you would want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it ought to have the proper software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are feasible with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be set up on a hosting server and that work with a great number of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based application that you'd like, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting
Our custom-built cloud server platform will provide the suitable software setting for all your sites whatever the content that you wish to have. Galleries and any other kinds of sites which work with images and charts are not an exception since ImageMagick and GD Library can be found with all the Linux web hosting
that we offer. Your account will be set up on our cloud platform and no matter which PHP version you'd like to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will always be enabled as standard, not on demand. If the script app that you employ offers such capabilities, you will be able to work with images from the admin area, while your website visitors will be able to do that by using the front end of the website.
