If you would like to have dynamic images on your website, the machine in which you host it must have the proper software for that. Instead of using static images with a fixed size, you can have thumbnails and automatically resized images depending on the device a website visitor uses or you may even flip and invert images using a script app. All of these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be set up on a web server and which work with a wide range of frequently used scripting languages like: Perl, Python and PHP. This way, you may use images with any web-based application you want, no matter what language it was designed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will enable you to work with over 100 different image formats like GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etc.

Both ImageMagick and GD Library can be found and activated by default on our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform, so your scripts can use them irrespective of the cloud package that you select when you sign up. This will allow you to build multimedia websites without having to worry about any technical limitations on our end. In case you have a portfolio site, for example, you can have dynamically generated thumbnails of the images which show your work, while if you own a social network or a similar website that engages your visitors in some way, you can offer them a number of editing solutions for the photos they upload. You can also convert text to images, that provides you with numerous opportunities as to what content you're able to offer on the website.
