ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a hosting server to enable images to appear on a particular site. They allow you to perform various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things could 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 show up on the site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution the site visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with many web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to just one language to develop your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.

All of the shared web hosting which we provide are generated on our revolutionary cloud platform and since both GD Library and ImageMagick are installed on it, your script apps will be able to use these software suites at any time. The libraries can be found with all of the PHP versions that we supply since we support PHP 4 and a few different versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you work with a custom script, one of the apps which you are able to install through the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party application that you find on the Internet, you will be able to build feature-rich multi-media websites, including image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the users will be able to work with graphs and images in real time provided that the script has such functionality.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present on the cloud hosting platform where your brand new semi-dedicated server account will be created, so you will be able to employ all the features of any script app that needs any of these 2 libraries in order to manage images, such as Joomla, WordPress, image galleries, community forums, and the like. If you are a web developer, you can write the code yourself as we also support lots of programming languages PHP and Python are among them. To offer you even more options with regards to what sort of apps you can run, we support many different PHP releases - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
