ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick suitable for? What precisely is the GD Library? What is the reason for their global recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a certain website. They permit you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be done 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 internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to only one language to create your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and activated as standard on our innovative cloud hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the cloud hosting
that you select when you register. This will allow you to create multimedia websites without worrying about any kind of technical limitations on our end. When you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while in case you have a social network or a similar site that engages the visitors in some way, you will be able to offer them various editing solutions for the photographs which they upload. You can also convert text to images, which provides you with many different opportunities regarding what content you're able to offer on your site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on the cloud hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server
accounts are created, you won't have any kind of problems to run any sort of script app which requires these libraries in order to work properly. A number of apps allow you to use charts and pictures - forums, content management systems, blog platforms, and many others, so when you employ such software on our end, you're able to use all of its options - automatically generated thumbnails for pictures attached to a forum reply or customizable avatars on a social network site, for example. Both libraries will be available with all of the PHP versions which you will be able to select through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
