ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a specific website. They permit you to execute different 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 example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically based on the device and resolution which the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD may be used with lots of web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to only one language to create your internet site. They work with more than a hundred formats, which includes the most popular ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to execute any kind of script application which requires GD Library or ImageMagick to make graphs or use images, as both are set up and activated by default on the cloud web hosting platform where all semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Even if you change the PHP version for your account, you will not have to do anything to re-enable these libraries as they will be available all the time. Thus, you will have loads of alternatives in respect to what features both you and your site visitors can use, no matter if you're writing the site code yourself, you employ one of our pre-installed script apps or you download and install some app that you've discovered on the web. You'll be able to employ all of the popular formats for the pictures which you upload.
