If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server in which you host it needs to have the suitable software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which may be installed on a web server and which work with a lot of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, regardless what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Website Hosting
Our in-house made cloud server platform supplies the best software setting for your websites regardless of the content that you want to have. Galleries as well as any other kinds of sites which employ images and charts are not an exception since ImageMagick and GD Library can be found with all the Linux cloud website hosting packages that we supply. Your account will be set up on the cloud website hosting platform and no matter which PHP version you prefer to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will be enabled by default, not on demand. If the script app that you use offers such capabilities, you'll be able to work with images from the admin area, while your site guests shall be able to do this by using the front end of your website.
