ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a server to enable images to show up on a particular website. They enable you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etc. These things can easily be performed 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 which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to create your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Web Hosting
All Linux shared web hosting packages which we supply are created on our advanced cloud platform and due to the fact that both GD Library and ImageMagick are present on it, your script applications can use these software suites at any time. The libraries can be found with all the PHP versions that we offer since we support PHP 4 and a couple of versions of PHP 5. No matter if you employ a custom-made script, one of the applications that you're able to install from the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party app that you find on the web, you'll be able to build feature-rich multi-media sites, such as image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the users can work with charts and / or images in real time as long as the script offers such options.

If you are a website designer, you'll be able to write the code yourself because we also support a number of programming languages PHP and Python are some of them. To provide you with even more options with regards to what kind of apps you can run, we support a number of PHP releases - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
