If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it needs to have the suitable software for that. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that can be set up on a hosting server and that work with a lot of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting

Our in-house made cloud server platform supplies the perfect software setting for your sites regardless of the content that you'd like to have. Galleries as well as all other types of websites which use images and charts are not an exception because ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible with all of the shared website hosting plans that we provide. Your account will be set up on the cloud platform and no matter which PHP version you intend to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will be enabled as standard, not on demand. Provided that the script app that you employ offers such capabilities, you will be able to work with images from the admin area, while the website guests will be able to do that using the front end of your site.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to run any kind of script application which requires GD Library or ImageMagick to make charts or use images, because both are set up and enabled by default on the cloud hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Even if you change the PHP version for your account, you won't have to do anything to re-enable these libraries as they will be accessible at all times. This way, you've got numerous alternatives in respect to what features you and your site visitors will be able to employ, regardless if you write the site code yourself, you use one of our pre-installed script apps or you download and set up some app which you have discovered on the web.
