ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick employed for? What is the GD Library? What is the reason for their worldwide recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server for images to appear on a given site. They allow you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so forth. These things can be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to build your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting
Our in-house built cloud server platform will provide the best software environment for your websites regardless of the content that you'd like to have. Galleries as well as all other kinds of sites that employ images and graphs are not an exception because ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible with all the shared website hosting plans
that we provide. Your account will be set up on the cloud hosting platform and regardless of 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 application which you employ offers such features, you'll be able to use images from the admin section, while the site guests will be able to do that by using the front end of the site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available on the cloud web hosting platform where your new semi-dedicated server
account will be created, so you'll be able to take advantage of the full attributes of any script app that needs any of these 2 libraries to manage images, such as Joomla™
, WordPress, picture galleries, forums, and many others. If you are a website designer, you are able to write the code yourself since we also support plenty of programming languages PHP and Python are among them. To give you even more options with regards to what sort of applications you will be able to run, we support many different PHP versions - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
