Cloudinary Storage Provider
So you may be thinking to yourself, "Another storage provider... why do I need another one?" Well, Cloudinary is no ordinary storage provider. Sure it can hold all your files in the
'cloud' just like Amazon S3 and the Azure File Storage provider. But what makes Cloudinary special is what it can do to transform your files as you load them. Enticed? Well, read on!
Cloudinary really shines with images. Once you upload an image to Cloudinary it can be retrieved with hundreds of different filters and transforms. For instance, it can:
- Resize your image
- Apply color filters
- Compress your images (unless you’re really diligent, most of the files you put on your website can be compressed by up to 60% without losing any quality)
- Blur your image
- Create thumbnails
- Rotate / Flip
- Text Overlays
- And many, many more...
But words are cheap. Check-out their demo site for more details.
