ImageMagick and GD Library
What's ImageMagick intended for? What is the GD Library? What is the reason for their popularity?
If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it ought to have the correct software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up on a web server and that work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you may use images with any web-based application you'd like, regardless what language it was developed 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 such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Web Hosting
All the Linux cloud web hosting which we offer are created on our leading-edge cloud platform and due to the fact that both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script apps will be able to use these software suites at any time. The libraries are available with all of the PHP versions that we offer since we support PHP 4 and a couple of versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you employ a custom-made script, one of the apps that you're able to install through the Hepsia Control Panel or a third-party application that you find on the web, you're able to build feature-rich multimedia sites, for instance image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and your users can work with charts as well as images in real time as long as the script features such options.
