If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the server where you host it should have the appropriate software for this. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a visitor uses or you could even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be installed on a hosting server and which work with a great number of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you could use images with any web-based application you want, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will enable you to work with more than 100 different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting
Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and activated by default on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform, so your scripts can use them whatever the shared website hosting plan that you select when you sign up. This will help you create interactive websites without having to worry about any technical limitations on our end. If you have a portfolio site, for instance, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures that show your work, while when you've got a social network or a similar website that engages your guests in some way, you can offer them a variety of editing options for the photos which they upload. In addition, you can convert text to images, that will provide you with lots of opportunities with regards to what content you'll be able to offer on the website.
