ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is utilized for and why they're so well liked.
If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server in which you host it needs to have the proper software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script application. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that could be installed on a server and which work with a great number of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you may use images with any web-based app you want, regardless what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with more than one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

Regardless if you work with a tailor-made script, one of the applications which you can install from the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party app that you find online, you can build feature-rich multi-media websites, for instance image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and your users will be able to work with charts as well as images in real time provided that the script features such options.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server
package that we supply includes ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you switch the PHP version which is being used by your account, so you will not have to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script application that you use has in-built features to work with pictures and graphs, it'll work perfectly on our servers, regardless of whether you've found it online, if it is a part of the script library which you're able to access from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own.
