Cloudinary an excellent tool for managing images

2018-06-16

Pros

It is a very simple tool, its official website provides an excellent section that explains in detail how to use Cloudinary in many situations, either for the management of images or videos.

Cons

It can be a somewhat complex application for a person who is not familiar with this type of software because its interface is complex and the technical support team takes a little time to respond.

Quality Image Storage & Hosting

2018-01-16

Pros

Rather than doing it all ourselves, this service does it all for us and ensures that all of our hosted images are sized correctly and responsive. A huge time & money saver!

Cons

It's a little complicated to use and their interface design isn't the best, but as far as functionality goes it does what it needs to do!

Storage is not a problem anymore

2016-12-06

Their backend systems are based on Amazon's storage structure so you are in good hands. Their API is very well written and very easy to use.

Feature rich photo and video storage!

2018-05-07

Pros

There are many different API implementations and different rules, such as cropping, storage location, etc. that can be applied to incoming files.

Cons

The interface was a bit confusing at first, but after reading through a little documentation I was able to figure it out and within a couple of hours I had a fully functioning API setup allowing users of my website to easily add and update photos.

Very easy to implement, too costly for what it is and unfortunately a terrible support.

2018-05-10

Pros

Simple but effective user interface.

Cons

- We have implemented Cloudinary in an application with millions of images and I must say the value for money is not great compared to some of their competitors, especially if you do not use all their features.

Great service, does exactly what it advertises

2017-12-21

It's saved us a lot of time and money.

Pros

They have lots of clients for use in any language. Their api is intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

It can be a little overwhelming because it does SO MUCH. And their docs could be laid out a little neater.

Cut our file sizes in half!

2018-04-06

We cut our user uploaded file sizes in less than half which means faster load times, less server space, and Cloudinary was able to do this for us without any perceivable loss in quality - it all just happens like magic!

Pros

There is a LOT you can do with Cloudinary, so if image manipulation is your thing you will be very pleasantly surprised once you look at all options you have to work with your data. The reason we went to Cloudinary was to optimize the images, and without any noticeable loss in quality Cloudinary has helped us reduce the image file sizes by 50-60+%, which is a huge space savings for us.

Cons

The strength of Cloudinary could also be seen as con with so many options to choose from it was a little daunting to get setup initially.

Amazing software to store images and apply transformations

2018-04-25

Pros

Cloudinay allowed us to easily store all the images that we have in our application. Currently, all our profile images from our application are stored on Cloudinay.

Cons

Honestly, we did not find anything that we can not do with this application based on the purposes of the application, that is to store and apply transformations to images.

Feature-rich, flexible, and just a joy to work with.

2018-03-07

Pros

You can get exactly the image size, type, and crop you want, purely by modifying the URL. You can organize your assets into folders, and you can store any file type you need. I use it to store PDFs, ZIP files, and, of course, images.

Cons

The back/forward buttons on my mouse don't go back in state (I have to use the nav links in the UI to navigate back from an image to the folder its contained in, etc).
