ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server to enable images to show up on a given site. They allow you to carry out different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to create your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and enabled by default on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, which means that your scripts will be able to use them whatever the hosting
that you select when you register. This will help you build interactive sites without having to worry about any kind of technical restrictions on our end. If you have a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while in case you've got a social network or a similar website that engages the visitors in some way, you'll be able to provide them with a number of editing solutions for the photographs that they upload. In addition, you can convert text to images, which will give you various opportunities with regards to what content you're able to offer on the website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on the cloud hosting platform where all the semi-dedicated server
accounts are created, you will not have any kind of problems to run any kind of script application which requires these libraries in order to function effectively. Many apps allow you to work with charts and pictures - community forums, content management systems, blog platforms, etcetera, thus if you use such software on our end, you are able to use all of its options - automatically generated thumbnails for images attached to a forum reply or personalized avatars on a social network website, for example.
