If you would want to have dynamic images on your site, the web server where you host it should 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 based on the device a website visitor uses or you can even flip and invert images through a script app. All these things are possible with ImageMagick and GD library - two pieces of software that can be set up on a hosting server and that work with a great number of widely used scripting languages such as: Perl, Python and PHP. Thus, you could use images with any web-based application you want, regardless of the language it was developed with - a custom-made Perl script or a PHP one. The two libraries will allow you to work with more than a hundred different image formats such as GIF, PNG, TIFF, JPEG, and so on.

The libraries will be enabled all of the time even if you change the PHP version that is in use by your account, which means that you won't have to re-enable anything manually in case you move from PHP 5 to PHP 4 or vice versa. Provided the script app that you employ has inbuilt features to use pictures and charts, it'll work perfectly on our servers, regardless of whether you've acquired it online, if it's a part of the script library which you will be able to access from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel or if you wrote it on your own.
