If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it should have the suitable software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be installed on a web server and that work with a wide range of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application you want, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Web Hosting
Our in-house made cloud server platform will provide the proper software setting for all your websites regardless of the content that you'd like to have. Galleries and all other types of sites which employ images and graphs are not an exception because ImageMagick and GD Library can be found with all of the Linux cloud web hosting packages that we offer. Your account will be set up on our cloud platform and no matter which PHP version you prefer to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), both the libraries will always be enabled as standard, not on demand. Provided that the script application that you are using offers such capabilities, you will be able to use images from the administrative section, while your website guests shall be able to do that using the front end of the site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to execute any kind of script app that requires GD Library or ImageMagick to generate graphs or work with images, as both are set up and activated as standard on the cloud web hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. In case you change the PHP version for your account, you will not need to do anything to re-enable these libraries because they'll be accessible all the time. This way, you have loads of options in respect to what functions both you and your site visitors shall be able to use, no matter if you're writing the site code yourself, you use one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and set up some app which you have found online. You'll be able to employ all widespread formats for the pictures that you upload.
