If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it should have the appropriate software for that. As opposed to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images based on the device a visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images via a script app. All these things are doable with ImageMagick and GD library - 2 pieces of software that may be installed on a web server and that work with a large amount of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. That way, you can use images with any web-based application you'd like, irrespective of the language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with over one hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.
ImageMagick and GD Library in Cloud Web Hosting
Our custom cloud server platform will supply the ideal software environment for all of your websites regardless of the content that you'd like to have. Galleries and any other types of sites that employ images and charts are not an exception because ImageMagick and GD Library are available with all the Linux cloud web hosting that we offer. Your account will be created on our cloud hosting platform and no matter which PHP version you want 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 app that you are using offers such features, you could manage images from the admin area, while the website visitors will be able to do this by using the front end of your site.
