If you want to have dynamic images on your site, the server in which you host it needs to have the appropriate software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are feasible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that may be set up on a hosting server and that work with a lot of widespread scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, no matter what language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server
plan that we offer comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you switch the PHP version that is in use by your account, therefore you won't need to re-enable anything manually if you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script application that you use has in-built features to work with pictures and graphs, it'll function flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've acquired it online, if it is a part of the script library which you're able to access using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch. With our services, you are able to create multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
