If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine in which you host it must have the appropriate software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a web server and which work with a lot of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless what 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, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting
Our tailor-made cloud server platform will supply the ideal software environment for all of your sites regardless of the content that you wish to have. Galleries and all other kinds of sites which use images and charts are not an exception since ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible with all of the Linux shared hosting that we provide. Your account will be set up on our cloud website hosting 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 by default, not on demand. Given that the script app which you employ offers such capabilities, you will be able to use images from the administrative section, while your website visitors will be able to do that using the front end of the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to execute any script application which requires GD Library or ImageMagick to generate charts or work with images, because both are set up and activated by default on the cloud hosting platform where all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. In case you switch the PHP version for your account, you will not need to do anything in order to re-enable these libraries as they shall be available all of the time. In this way, you've got plenty of options in respect to what attributes you and your website visitors shall be able to use, no matter if you write the website code yourself, you employ one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and install some application which you've found on the Internet. You'll be able to employ all the popular formats for the photos which you upload.
