ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a web server for images to show up on a certain internet site. They allow you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution which 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 need to stick to just one language to build your internet site. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Web Hosting
All the Linux cloud web hosting packages which we supply are generated on our revolutionary cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications can use these software suites at any time. The libraries are accessible with all of the PHP versions that we supply as we support PHP 4 and a couple of versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you work with a custom-made script, one of the apps that you are able to install from the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party application that you find online, you will be able to build feature-rich multi-media sites, for instance image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and your users will be able to work with charts and images in real time provided the script has such functionality.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present on the cloud hosting platform where your brand new semi-dedicated server account will be created, therefore you'll be able to take advantage of all of the attributes of any script application that needs any of these two libraries to manage images, like Joomla, WordPress, image galleries, user discussion forums, and many others. If you are a web developer, you can write the code yourself because we also support a number of programming languages PHP and Python are among them. To provide you with even more options with regards to what applications you will be able to run, we support a number of different PHP releases - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. GD and ImageMagick are enabled for any of them, so the software environment on the servers won't limit your choice in terms of the types of websites that you can host.
