ImageMagick and GD are two of the most widely used graphic software libraries out there. They make the dynamic creation and editing of images and graphs on a site possible, so they must be present on a web server if you host your sites on it and you would want to have something different from static images with fixed dimensions. If ImageMagick and GD are present, you'll be able to edit any image in a variety of ways - generate thumbnails, change the colors, flip it, blur it, and so forth. However, these adjustments are doable if the script app which you employ on your internet site allows you to do such things. The 2 libraries can be used with many programming languages - PHP, Python, Perl, and so on., and support over one hundred frequently used image formats that you'll be able to work with - PNG, PSD, JPEG, TIFF, GIF and more.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to run any kind of script application which requires GD Library or ImageMagick to make graphs or work with images, since both are installed and activated by default on the cloud hosting platform where all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Even though you may upgrade the PHP version for your account, you won't have to do anything to re-enable these libraries as they'll be accessible all the time. Thus, you will have a lot of options in respect to what features you and your site visitors will be able to use, no matter if you are writing the website code yourself, you use one of our pre-installed script apps or you download and set up some app which you've discovered online. You'll be able to use all the sought-after formats for the photos which you upload.
