Best CDN service to deliver Images

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

It has a very clean and fluid UI, this is the best CDN service provider for better delivery of images in the very most optimized format, it allows us to create, copy, move, and many other manipulations such as image resizing according to the needs. It also has low bandwidth consumption and image quality doesn't hinder. Server requests are very fast and pictures are delivered pretty fast.

Cons

Nothing at all, I think it's the best CDN service for images it comes with its excellent UI dashboard and fast server response.

Great image performance solution

Reviewed 2 years ago

We'been using ImageKit for faster image delivery through an Image CDN, better image processing (smaller file size), cache for dynamic URLs. Much faster page load, happier clients. Specially in mobile/3G connections, this is much more noticeable.

Pros

Endpoints connected to non-static image sources. This enables us to do some really cool & fast dynamic image generation. Without Imagekit, our dynamic images would be not very performant, which leads to an overall slower website experience.

Cons

It's not so easy to understand where are we using all our bandwidth within ImageKit. ImageKit dashboard provides have a monthly view with the highest consumption resources, but as we try to adjust things, it's hard to see if they're working until the next month.

Everything worked great, easy to implement.

Reviewed 4 years ago

painless format conversion and thumb generation.

Pros

The transition from an existing S3 bucket with lots of assets was easy. We needed an auto rotation feature (based on EXIF data) and it was implemented very quickly from their team.

Cons

So far so good. The flat rate is interesting but actually a bit expensive for our needs. We run an application used by university and some period (holidays, semester breaks) have a very low activity.

Too easy!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Faster page loads.

Pros

Easy to integrate, good documentation and customer support. Some cool features like analytics that identify specific images that can be further optimised and how you can speed up your web pages.

Cons

None. It does what we need to do and more.

If you are looking for fast image delivery, you can stop here

Reviewed 10 months ago

I have been using it for years as a service to deliver photos to the end-user. I must say as a photo hosting, it works great. I recently started using the API option to optimize the photos that are on the website and I like the simplicity, but I still haven't quite measured the speed at which the service optimizes the photos. I am generally satisfied with the functioning. They are constantly improving, following trends, and trying to follow the requirements that, above all, Google imposes.

Pros

If you have photos on the site that need to be adjusted so that they load faster, all you need to do is install their WP plugin and everything will be optimized. That's it, in one click. On the other hand, there is the option of uploading directly to the Imagekit control panel and then linking on the site with that target external source.

Cons

I will love for the service to inform me what to choose or do, to get more optimized image delivery. In options, there is fixed value to choose but I will love for it to have more flexibility and to automate the delivery based on what is known.

Imagekit is awesome, simple but complete

Reviewed 2 months ago

I've been using the image cdn from imagekit, and this is the first time I've come across an interesting offer. To get started, there is no charge. We can get 20GB of monthly bandwidth, as well as 20Gb of free storage. ImageKit is also compatible with many programming languages, I think it's the most amazing premium service I've ever tried. If you don't believe me, try it, I'm sure you'll be addicted. Thank you imagekit, for helping me in starting a personal blog.

Pros

I like the api features and libraries that can be applied to many application programs.

Cons

I don't like the javascript-based UI (front end) and there's no mobile friendly UI.

Handy image optiminzation tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

I am not a graphic designer nor a technical person but for my work, sometimes, I have to be ready with my images and graphs for my clients. This tool helped me a lot . I am happy now to have this fine graphic management tool with me.

Pros

It has all the features one needs to have to optimize the tool. Easy steps for creating the profile. Great look and feel with sorted dashboard where you can find different sections for manage and track your graphics. Just make a library and add the images into it, so that this tool can make a track for the same. You even don't need extra ordinary technical knowledge to run this software.

Cons

I have found resolution issues sometimes while directly sharing it on the other social media platforms like facebook and twitter.

Fantastic service, speedy support, great pricing

Reviewed 4 years ago

Great pricing, super helpful support, fast infrastructure

Pros

There are 2 things that did it for us: 1) You don't pay for storage. 2) The low pricing. Compare that to the biggest competitor Cloudinary, and you'll be blown away. We saved SO MUCH money by migrating our images from Cloudinary to ImageKit. And even though ImageKit doesn't have as many features, they clearly focussed on the right ones. We are missing exactly nothing! Service is also pretty damn good. When we first signed up, they were quick to help, always responsive and even implemented our feature requests within a matter of days! They really took our feedback to heart. Overall I can say, that I'm very impressed by their service. It's speedy, their support is quick & helpful, it's got all the important features and the pricing is just great. I love it.

Cons

They got all the important features right, but the API is missing a little bit of management skills. We don't need it as much, but it would be really helpful to add stuff like renaming & moving files around or to simply tag them, so you can group them and mass move them to different folders.

Great product hat turns serving (incl. CDN) and transforming images into a plug-and-play experience

Reviewed 4 years ago

Straight forward, performant and secure way for serving and transforming media that can easily (great documentation, nice SDKs, great integration with e.g. Amazon S3) be incorporated in our applications and software.

Pros

Value for money ratio is perfect, very straight forward to utilise, well thought of user interfaces and documentations, and the best support I have experienced (immediate answers and fast on-spot solutions via support chat or email)

Cons

Hard question. Hm, sometimes the billing section is buggy in regards to invoice pdfs and data displayed.

Absolutely fantastic, ImageKit provide a service second to none. Greatest Image CDN+ on the web!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The platform has a great and clear API and offers excellent compression compared to other provider. The smart cropping feature completely outdoes the competition. Their support services are amazing, we've had them repair bugs in their platform for us live before.

Cons

The software doesn't yet have an affiliate program or API to pull stats from the dashboard on uploads per folder/domain which would be very useful.

Setup and forget

Reviewed 3 years ago

I haven't really looked back after setting it up.

Pros

The service provides a stable system for resizing images, In the past year I used it it did not have noticeable outages. The api is also really easy to use and my migration was easy (but we used a similar in-house service before). It also saved a ton op data for our customers.

Cons

I'm missing a feedback loop for things like missing images

Media Library Works Great

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, this site helps me upload my main images, so other team members can see it. I needed more space and help in this area. I also love what this site does.

Pros

I love how I am able to upload my files to the media library. When working with different teams I need an area to upload my files and put certain file uploads on certain sites that I have. I also love how this software has a big storage area. I like how this software site has an image settting button. I love to set my images on certain settings, for example the setting that focuses on which format delivery option is the best for the image. I am glad I have an option to set it on or off.

Cons

I least like how everything is set up. I wish the dashboard and helpful area wasn't confusing. I know what to do for the most part, but the questions on the side and the information on the side is too much. This area on the left side needs to be simplified, especially when there is a lot of work to be done. It's a bit hard to focus on. The site needs to explain the information in a more simpler way.

Graphics management made Real-time using Imagekit

Reviewed 4 years ago

Through Imagekit, we can efficiently manage image optimization, Image manipulation, also this tool automatically tracks and manage our Graphics so don't need that much of Technical knowledge, even a newbie can manage this with ease. It has most favourable GUI and Easy interface so we dont get bored using this tool.

Pros

Imagekit has Auto image manuplation which is quite effective for us, as being Digital marketing Person I personally dont have that much of graphics management and optimzation experience, but thanks to Imagekit I can easily mange all my graphial work faster than before.

Cons

Sometime I got stuck with Resolution as every Social media platform have their own guidelines, Imagekit have to copup with this, else there is noting that I dislike about this Tool.
