If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the web server in which you host it must have the appropriate software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be installed on a hosting server and that work with a great number of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based app that you'd like, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will permit you to work with over 100 different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting
All the Linux web hosting that we supply are set up on our hi-tech cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on it, your script apps will be able to use these software suites any time. The libraries are available with all the PHP versions that we provide as we support PHP 4 and a few different versions of PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8. Regardless if you use a custom-made script, one of the applications that you are able to install through the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party app that you find on the web, you are able to build feature-rich multi-media sites, for instance image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the users can work with charts and / or images in real time provided the script has such functionality.
