Imagick Module

Hello,

I noticed that this php module isn’t available.
Is it intentionally disabled in free hosting? if requested can you enable it?

Module:
imagick

Thanks in advance.

Imagick is not available on free hosting and is disabled on purpose, as it consumes more server resources.

It’s likely it is disabled. I happen to know from self-hosting my site that this module is CPU intensive, like many GFX operations. There are a bunch of alternatives that you might wish to explore, try What are some alternatives to ImageMagick? - StackShare or google for alternatives.

If something doesn’t work around here, I’ve discovered that it’s highly likely it has been disabled - usually there is a technical reason, but occasionally it’s simply because they’ve decided to make it a premium feature to encourage some $$$, and why not? They’re a business after all. It’s their perogative if they want to change for a feature and we don’t like it, we are free to move our data.
