If you would like to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it needs to have the suitable software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be installed on a hosting server and which work with a wide range of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app you want, irrespective of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with more than 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Web Hosting

Our custom-made cloud server platform provides the optimal software setting for all of your sites whatever the content that you'd like to have. Galleries and all other kinds of websites that work with images and charts are not an exception because ImageMagick and GD Library are available with all of the shared web hosting plans that we offer. Your account will be created on the cloud hosting platform and no matter which PHP version you wish to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will always be enabled as standard, not on demand. Provided that the script app that you are using offers such features, you could use images from the admin section, while the site visitors will be able to do this by using the front end of your website.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available on the cloud hosting platform where your brand new semi-dedicated server account will be generated, which means that you can employ all the features of any script application which needs any of the two libraries so as to manage images, such as Joomla, WordPress, image galleries, discussion boards, and the like. In case you are a website designer, you can write the program code yourself because we also support lots of programming languages PHP and Python are among them. To provide you with even more options with regards to what applications you are able to run, we support several different PHP versions - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. GD and ImageMagick will be enabled for all of them, so the software environment on our servers will never limit your choice in terms of the types of sites which you can host.
