Cloudinary

Cloudinary handles pretty much anything you have related to images. From serving them up efficiently to adding transformations on the fly, there's really little this service doesn't do. Their pricing plans allow you to grow into the right levels and their website dashboards are very helpful. I would easily recommend this for all but the simplest of use cases.

If you are looking for an affordable solution for logos, photos or videos this is one of the best solutions we have found. It handles several file types and provides a more affordable option than other DAM services. If you are looking for an enterprise DAM solution this is probably not what you are looking for but it doesn't pretend to be that.

Cons

Cloudinary

  • Their API does require URLs that can get quite lengthy and not always easy to parse on sight.
  • Documentation on how transformations work and what they actually do to your image could be clearer (what does force_strip actually mean?).
  • Although a free tier exists and is quite generous, should you need to acquire a premium plan for your needs the pricing at scale can climb quickly.

    Support Rating

    Cloudinary

    We rarely use their support. But when we need it they are always there. They provide great consultation and suggestions to help us manage our costs and resources better. In the last 8 years perhaps we have contacted them 3 or 4 times - which is really really great

    Helpful onboarding support and also a very relaxed introductory demo and trial period. The support team walked me through all stages of linking our Drive account and adding assets. The online support site has a ton of resources and helpful explanations. Email support was also a big help to get us started.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cloudinary

    Cloudinary seemed to be the most sophisticated with the most documentation and platform support. Other solutions seemed to be a lot harder to implement, however, due to the good documentation and API samples on their GitHub we were able to implement it nicely. Additionally, they have a lot of really well-known brands using them like Wired, Sky News, and eBay which gave us a lot of confidence that this was a good robust solution to use and to help others with

    Pics.io has a more approachable setup and pricing structure for our needs. It also uses a familiar online storage setup for an easier learning curve. We also didn't have to pay for a higher storage tier that we wouldn't end up needing. The other services were definitely in the running but the ability to use our existing Google account was a big plus.
