If you would like to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server in which you host it should have the correct software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images in accordance with the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script application. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be installed on a hosting server and that work with a great number of popular scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application you'd like, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server package that we provide features ImageMagick and GD Library support as standard. The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you upgrade the PHP version which is being used by your account, which means that you will not need to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. In case the script app that you employ has built-in options to use pictures and graphs, it will function perfectly on our servers, no matter if you've discovered it online, if it is part of the script library that you are able to access from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it from scratch.
