Is it better to make a new DB for photopost or use the existing one that I have my VB on and why? Is it safer to have them separate? Will it give me more flexibility 2 years down the road to have them separate. What are the risks/benefits of each option?
I notice you can use imagemagic or GD. Which one is better and or preferred and why?
I prefer ImageMagick because it supports way more image types than GD and I think the quality is a little higher but GD2 is comparible. The main reason though I use ImageMagick is while people say why use ImageMagick if you have GD since it is part of PHP why. Is that exact reason. GD is part of PHP and as such uses what memory is left over by PHP. It is prone to timeouts and memory leakage causing memory exhaustion. Probally 20 percent of the threads on here are from errors in relation to the use of GD
