ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a server for images to show up on a particular internet site. They allow you to perform different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the website or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with lots of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to build your internet site. They work with more than 100 formats, which includes the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to run any script app which requires GD Library or ImageMagick to generate graphs or work with images, since both are set up and activated by default on the cloud website hosting platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Even though you may upgrade the PHP version for your account, you will not need to do anything in order to re-enable these libraries as they shall be available at all times. Thus, you'll have a number of alternatives in respect to what attributes both you and your site visitors shall be able to use, no matter if you are writing the site code yourself, you employ one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and set up some app which you have found on the web. You're able to employ all of the widespread formats for the photos which you upload.
