ImageMagick and GD Library
What is ImageMagick intended for? What is the GD Library? What lies behind their worldwide recognition?
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that ought to be present on a web server in order for images to appear on a particular internet site. They allow you to execute various tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, and so on. These things can easily be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for instance, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically with regards to the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be employed with many web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you don't have to stick to only one language to build your internet site. They work with over a hundred formats, which includes the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.

The libraries are available with all of the PHP versions that we offer since we support PHP 4 and several versions of PHP 5. Regardless if you use a custom-made script, one of the applications that you will be able to install from the Hepsia Control Panel or some third-party app that you find on the worldwide web, you will be able to build feature-rich interactive websites, for instance image galleries or socially-oriented portals where both you and the users can work with charts as well as images in real time provided the script offers such options.
