If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it should have the proper software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script application. All of these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which could be set up on a web server and which work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based app you'd like, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will permit you to work with over one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are available and enabled by default on our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts will be able to use them whatever the shared plan that you select when you sign up. This will help you create interactive websites without worrying about any sort of technical limitations on our end. When you have a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images that show your work, while if you've got a social network or a similar website which engages the guests in some way, you'll be able to provide them with a variety of editing options for the pictures that they upload. Also, you can convert text to pictures, that will provide you with numerous opportunities regarding what content you'll be able to offer on your site.
