By default, it's PHP GD2.

  1. We need to use ImageMagick or GD2?

  2. Is there more benefit of ImageMagick over GD2?

  3. What is recommended?


1 Answer 1


I recommended ImageMagick as far as image quality goes. It seems to produce considerably sharper/higher-quality images than GD2 (at the expense of larger filesize.)

ImageMagick is also not bound by PHP's memory limit.
