ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is and just what the GD Library is utilized for and why they are so popular.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries which should be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a particular website. They enable you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily 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 appear on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution that the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with various web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't need to stick to only one language to create your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widely used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Web Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled as standard on our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts can use them whatever the web hosting that you select when you sign up. This will help you create interactive sites without having to worry about any sort of technical restrictions on our end. When you have a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while in case you own a social network or a similar site which engages the guests in some way, you'll be able to provide them with a number of editing solutions for the photos which they upload. You can also convert text to images, which will provide you with quite a lot of opportunities as to what content you are able to offer on the site.
