If you want to have dynamic images on your internet site, the web server where you host it should have the correct software for this. As an alternative 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 through a script application. All of these things are doable via ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software which may be installed on a server and which work with a wide range of popular scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application you'd like, no matter what language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries shall allow you to work with more than one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers
Every single semi-dedicated server plan that we offer comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled all the time even if you upgrade the PHP version which is being used by your account, therefore you won't need to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5, PHP 7, PHP 8 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app that you use has inbuilt options to work with pictures and graphs, it'll function flawlessly on our servers, no matter if you've found it online, if it is a part of the script library which you're able to access through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own.
