ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is and what the GD Library is used for and why they are so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are two of the most frequently used graphic software libraries nowadays. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a website possible, so they need to be installed on a server if you host your websites on it and you prefer to have something different than static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you'll be able to edit any image in various ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, etcetera. Of course, these modifications are feasible if the script application which you employ on your internet site permits you to carry out such things. The 2 libraries can easily be used with many website development languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth., and support over one hundred frequently used image formats which you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and others.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Web Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled by default on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them regardless of the Linux shared web hosting package that you select when you join us. This will help you set up interactive sites without having to worry about any tech limitations on our end. When you own a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while if you have a social network or a similar site which engages your visitors in some way, you're able to provide them with a variety of editing solutions for the photos they upload. Also, you can convert text to pictures, that gives you various opportunities as to what content you can offer on the site.
