Image manipulation with scripts

You can manipulate images with your scripts by using GD, Imagick, ImageMagick or NetPBM.

  • PHP is compiled with GD support on all our servers. You can use it directly with your PHP scripts.
  • The Imagick PHP extension can be activated by adding the following line to your global php.ini file:

extension = imagick.so

Instructions on editing the global php.ini file can be found at http://www.suresupport.com/faq/71/468.

  • The ImageMagick binaries are located in this directory:

/usr/local/bin/

For example, the full paths to the convert and the mogrify binaries are:

/usr/local/bin/convert

/usr/local/bin/mogrify

  • The path to the NetPBM binaries is:

/usr/local/netpbm/bin
