If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the server in which you host it should have the appropriate software for this. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a site visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images through a script application. All these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up on a hosting server and that work with a lot of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based application that you would like, regardless of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Shared Website Hosting

Both ImageMagick and GD Library are accessible and activated by default on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, which means that your scripts can use them regardless of the shared website hosting that you select when you register. This will help you set up multimedia websites without worrying about any sort of tech limitations on our end. In case you own a portfolio website, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the pictures which show your work, while when you've got a social network or a similar website which engages the guests in some way, you'll be able to provide them with a variety of editing options for the images they upload. You can also convert text to images, which will give you many different opportunities as to what content you are able to offer on your website.
