If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the machine where you host it should have the appropriate software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which could be set up on a web server and which work with a large amount of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you may use images with any web-based app you want, regardless of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
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 generated, therefore you will be able to use all of the features of any script application which needs any of these two libraries in order to manage images, such as Joomla™
, WordPress, photo galleries, forums, and many others. If you are a website designer, you'll be able to write the code yourself since we also support a number of programming languages PHP and Python are among them. To give you even more options with regards to what kind of apps you are able to run, we support a variety of PHP versions - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. GD and ImageMagick will be enabled for any of them, which means that the software environment on our servers won't limit your choice in terms of the types of websites that you can have.
