If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it should have the appropriate software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which can be installed on a hosting server and which work with a lot of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting
All of the shared plans that we supply are set up on our cutting-edge cloud platform and due to the fact that both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications can use these software suites any time. The libraries are accessible with all of the PHP versions that we offer because we support PHP 4 and multiple versions of PHP 5. No matter if you work with a custom-made script, one of the applications which you can install from the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party application that you find on the worldwide web, you are able to build feature-rich interactive sites, including image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the users can work with charts as well as images in real time provided the script offers such functionality.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server plan that we supply includes ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled at all times even if you upgrade the PHP version that is in use by your account, so you will not need to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app which you employ has in-built options to work with pictures and charts, it'll function perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've found it online, if it is part of the script library that you are able to access using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch. With our services, you are able to make multi-media image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
