If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the web server where you host it should have the suitable software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are doable through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be installed on a web server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you could use images with any web-based app you want, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because both GD Library and ImageMagick are set up on the cloud platform where all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created, you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application that needs these libraries in order to function effectively. A lot of apps allow you to use graphs and images - community forums, cms, blog platforms, etcetera, thus when you work with such software on our end, you can use all of its options - automatically generated thumbnails for images attached to a forum reply or personalized avatars on a social network website, for example. Both libraries will be available with all the PHP releases that you will be able to select through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5.
