If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it needs to have the proper software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two 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. That way, you can use images with any web-based app you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with more than one hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting
Our in-house made cloud server platform supplies the suitable software setting for your websites regardless of the content that you wish to have. Galleries and all other kinds of sites that use images and charts are not an exception as ImageMagick and GD Library are available with all the shared packages that we supply. Your account will be created 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 be enabled by default, not on demand. Provided that the script application which you employ offers such options, you could use images from the administrative section, while your website guests will be able to do this by using the front end of the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can run any kind of script app that requires GD Library or ImageMagick to make graphs or work with images, since both are set up and activated by default on the cloud web hosting platform where all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. In case you change the PHP version for your account, you will not have to do anything to re-enable these libraries as they shall be available at all times. This way, you'll have plenty of options in respect to what features you and your site visitors will be able to use, regardless if you are writing the website code yourself, you use one of our pre-installed script apps or you download and install some app that you've found on the web. You will be able to employ all the sought-after formats for the images which you upload.
