ImageMagick and GD Library
Learn more about ImageMagick and GD Library and see why they are now present on almost every web server.
If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the server where you host it needs to have the appropriate software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are possible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be installed on a web server and which work with a large amount of widely used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based application that you'd like, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.

Galleries as well as all other kinds of sites that use images and graphs are not an exception as ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible with all the shared website hosting plans
that we supply. Your account will be set up on our cloud website hosting platform and regardless of which PHP version you would like to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will be enabled by default, not on demand. Provided that the script app which you are using offers such capabilities, you will be able to work with images from the admin area, while the website visitors will be able to do this by using the front end of the site.
