Original files remain untouched, but when buyer downloads smaller image, it is resized by image processor. And without ImageMagick buyer can get this:

Some hosts will refund money if you have to move...maybe yours does? I think this is the reason why leo suggests bluehost...because of all the hosting companies, it works best with SY.

I have my domain hosted with Go Daddy wonder which of their packages offers the use of Image Magick.

I also need a monthly plan like pay a few months at a time as I can't do a yearly package at this point in time.

How have the other people on Godaddy solved this problem?

I was looking around on the Go Daddy site and it's available on their Linux Hosting.  Course I no absolutely nothing about Linux does that mean (and bear with me cause I'm going to feel like an idiot asking) that their hosting is Linux based (it can be selected during signup not sure if it would be changeable afterward) and will I have problems working on my site with a Windows OS?

The image processor doesn't mess with the original files that buyers would download?  Those would remain intact how they were originally created?

ImageMagick is mainly used to create the thumbnails, watermarked images, and resize images when a buyer purchases an image that is smaller than the original size.

If it is used on your original files, it is probably just used for IPTC info (such as the copyright in your image).  I haven't checked that yet.

I have a Linux hosting account on Godaddy and after banging my head against a wall for a couple months I realized that simply upgrading to the latest version of PHP made imagemagick instantly available to my symbiostock site. As I converted an existing website into a symbiostock site, my site had an older version of PHP. If you are setting up a new hosting account with godaddy it should already have the latest version of PHP. I'm not sure about your Linux/Windows question. Give godaddy customer service a call. I've always had a positive experience with them.

I use GoDaddy hosting (w/ Linux) and have had almost no issues with them.  Everything (WordPress, php, ImageMagick, etc) has worked fine from the beginning.

I found a setting in the CSS file that added padding around at 50px.  I'm taking it down and it's changing the size of the image on the image page.  It's making it bigger preview.  Not sure if I can get it down to where the preview is the original size or not but it's getting there.

I managed to edit php.ini. My photos are being processed using imageMagik. But I am unable to reprocess my old images; the server is getting timeout

In php.ini i think there is a setting for that, but i have read that depending on your host that might happen. If you cant change that setting, maybe try smaller batches?
