If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it must have the appropriate software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be set up on a hosting server and which work with a lot of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can use images with any web-based application you want, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available on the cloud hosting platform where your brand new semi-dedicated server account will be set up, so you'll be able to take advantage of the full attributes of any script application which needs any of the two libraries so as to manage images, such as Joomla, WordPress, photo galleries, message boards, and many others. In case you are a web developer, you are able to write the program code yourself since we also support a lot of programming languages PHP and Python are among them. To supply you with even more options with regards to what sort of apps you will be able to run, we support a number of PHP releases - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
