Cloud services have fast become a vital step into the next generation of hosting and delivering efficient web applications. Today, we are excited to present everyone a revolutionary web service called Cloudinary. Cloudinary is a step forward for web application developers, which allow them to concentrate on building their application instead of spending time on building a common infrastructure, in this case – image management and image manipulation.

About Cloudinary

Cloudinary is a SaaS (Software as a Service) that offers a solution to the entire image management pipeline. It enables easy image uploads to the cloud and smart image transformations in the cloud without installing any complex software: resize, crop, face detection based cropping, rounded corners, custom coordinates cropping, format conversion and more.

Cloudinary also delivers all images through a fast CDN with advanced caching and provides automatic Facebook & Twitter profile picture embedding and transforming to match your website’s design. You can set up your Cloudinary account within seconds and integrate it with your web application in a snap.

Here’s a quick example of what Cloudinary can do. The following URL –,h_100,c_thumb,g_face,r_25/billclinton.png

Dynamically returns the following image:

Behind the scenes, this single URL request told Cloudinary to access Facebook’s API, download Bill Clinton’s latest profile picture matching the requested dimensions, use face detection to create a perfect face thumbnail crop, round the corners for a nicer look, cache the image for consecutive requests and deliver the final image through a fast CDN. Isn’t that cool?

Anyone can use Cloudinary to:

  • Manage all your assets and web resources in the cloud.
  • Allow any web application, large or small, to enjoy modern web delivery platforms.
  • Completely remove the tedious tasks of locally managing web resources; instead, utilize the advanced features and industry best practices we always wished we had.
