If you want to have dynamic images on your website, the web server where you host it must have the appropriate software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you could have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script application. All of these things are feasible via ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software which can be set up on a web server and that work with a lot of frequently used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you could use images with any web-based application you'd like, regardless what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The 2 libraries will allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so forth.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Website Hosting
Our tailor-made cloud server platform will supply the proper software environment for all of your sites regardless of the content that you wish to have. Galleries and any other types of sites which work with images and graphs are not an exception as ImageMagick and GD Library are available with all of the cloud website hosting that we provide. Your account will be set up on our cloud hosting platform and no matter which PHP version you wish to use (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), both the libraries will always be enabled as standard, not on demand. Provided that the script application that you use offers such options, you could use images from the admin section, while your website visitors will be able to do that using the front end of the website.
