ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server in order for images to appear on a certain internet site. They enable you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be carried out online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with a lot of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to build your website. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.

You can also convert text to pictures, which will provide you with quite a lot of opportunities as to what content you'll be able to offer on the site.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we supply comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you upgrade the PHP version that is being used by your account, so you won't need to re-enable anything manually in case you switch from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script application that you use has inbuilt features to work with pictures and charts, it'll function flawlessly on our servers, regardless of whether you've discovered it online, if it's a part of the script library that you will be able to access using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you created it from scratch. When you use our services, you will be able to generate interactive image galleries, portfolio websites or feature-rich social network portals.
