ImageMagick and GD are software libraries that should be present on a server to enable images to appear on a given site. They allow you to carry out a variety of tasks with the images - create, flip, resize, change colors, etcetera. These things could be done online and in real time, so if you add a static image, for example, the libraries make it possible for a thumbnail to show up on the internet site or for the image to be resized automatically depending upon the device and resolution the visitor is using. Both ImageMagick and GD can be used with a lot of web programming languages including PHP, Perl and Python, so you do not need to stick to one particular language to create your site. They work with over a hundred formats, including the most frequently used ones - JPEG, GIF, TIFF, PNG, and so forth.

You can run any script application that requires GD Library or ImageMagick to create charts or use images, as both are set up and activated by default on the cloud hosting platform where all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created. Even though you may upgrade the PHP version for your account, you won't need to do anything in order to re-enable these libraries because they will be available all the time. This way, you will have a number of alternatives in respect to what features you and your site visitors can use, regardless if you write the website code yourself, you use one of our pre-installed script applications or you download and set up some application that you've discovered on the Internet.
