If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the machine in which you host it should have the proper software for that. Rather than using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up on a web server and that work with a great number of widespread scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. In this way, you can use images with any web-based application that you would like, irrespective of the language it was created with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over one hundred different image formats including GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

Also, you can convert text to images, that will provide you with quite a lot of opportunities regarding what content you'll be able to offer on your website.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server package that we supply comes with ImageMagick and GD Library support by default. The libraries will be enabled at all times 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 to PHP 4 or vice versa. If the script app that you use has built-in options to use pictures and charts, it'll function flawlessly on our servers, regardless if you've acquired it online, if it's part of the script library which you're able to access through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel or if you created it on your own. With our services, you'll be able to make multimedia image galleries, portfolio sites or feature-rich social network portals.
