ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick used for? What exactly is the GD Library? What lies behind their global recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are 2 of the most widespread graphic software libraries available. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site possible, so they must be installed on a server if you host your websites on it and you would like to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are installed, you will be able to edit any image in various ways - create thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. Needless to say, these changes are possible if the script app that you employ on your website allows you to carry out such things. The 2 libraries can be used with numerous programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support over a hundred widely used image formats which you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated by default on our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts can use them regardless of the cloud hosting
that you select when you register. This will allow you to build interactive sites without worrying about any kind of tech limitations on our end. If you own a portfolio website, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while in case you have a social network or a similar site that engages your visitors in some way, you're able to offer them various editing options for the images which they upload. In addition, you can convert text to images, which gives you many different opportunities with regards to what content you are able to offer on your website.

The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you switch the PHP version that is being used by your account, so you will not need to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script application which you use has inbuilt options to work with pictures and graphs, it'll function perfectly on our servers, regardless if you've discovered it online, if it is a part of the script library which you're able to access using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch. When you use our services, you're able to make multimedia image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
