ImageMagick and GD Library
Find out what ImageMagick is as well as what the GD Library can be used for and why they are so widely common.
ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server in order for images to appear on a particular site. They allow you to perform a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things can easily be performed online and in real time, so if you include a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to appear on the website or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the website visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with various web programming languages such as PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not have to stick to a single language to develop your internet site. They work with over 100 formats, which includes the most widespread ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library are present and activated as standard on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, which means that your scripts will be able to use them regardless of the cloud hosting that you select when you sign up. This will help you create multimedia websites without having to worry about any technical restrictions on our end. In case you own a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images which show your work, while if you've got a social network or a similar website which engages your visitors in some way, you can offer them a number of editing solutions for the images which they upload. You can also convert text to pictures, which provides you with many different opportunities regarding what content you're able to offer on your website.
