ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a particular internet site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending on the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to a single language to develop your site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting

The libraries are available with all the PHP versions that we offer as we support PHP 4 and a couple of versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you use a custom-made script, one of the applications which you are able to install from the Hepsia Control Panel or a third-party app that you find on the web, you can build feature-rich multimedia sites, like image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and your users can work with graphs and / or images in real time as long as the script has such functionality.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on the cloud hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created, you will not have any problems to run any script app that needs these libraries to operate effectively. A lot of apps allow you to work with graphs and pictures - community forums, content management systems, blog platforms, etcetera, thus when you employ such software on our end, you're able to use all of its features - automatically generated thumbnails for images linked to a forum reply or personalized avatars on a social network site, for example. The two libraries will be provided with all PHP versions which you'll be able to select from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
