ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn more about ImageMagick and GD Library and see why they're currently present on almost every single server.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that need to be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a given internet site. They allow you to execute different tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution which the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be employed with many different web programming languages like PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to create your site. They work with more than one hundred formats, including the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so on.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and activated by default on our innovative cloud website hosting platform, which means that your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the Linux cloud package that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to build interactive websites without having to worry about any sort of technical restrictions on our end. If you have a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while in case you have a social network or a similar site that engages the visitors in some way, you'll be able to offer them a number of editing solutions for the photos that they upload. In addition, you can convert text to pictures, that gives you numerous opportunities regarding what content you're able to offer on your site.
