If you would want to have dynamic images on your website, the web server where you host it must have the appropriate software for this. As an alternative to using static images with a fixed size, you may have thumbnails and automatically resized images dependant upon the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images using a script application. All of these things are possible through ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that could be set up on a hosting server and which work with a great number of popular scripting languages including: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you can 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 shall allow you to work with over a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, etcetera.

ImageMagick and GD Library in Semi-dedicated Servers

accounts are created, you won't experience any problems to run any sort of script app that requires these libraries in order to operate efficiently. A number of applications allow you to work with charts and pictures - forums, cms, blog platforms, etcetera, so if you use such software on our end, you're able to use all of its features - automatically generated thumbnails for pictures attached to a forum reply or customizable avatars on a social network site, for example.
