Pros and Cons

  • Cloudinary is the best in the market for photo and video transformations.
  • Cloudinary takes customer's requests for special features and implements them very quickly.
  • Pricing is a bit high, and this is the area where they need to adjust.
  • They are great in scaling but they may need to do bit more for infinite scaling.

Pros and Cons

  • Cloudinary gives you the ability to transform your images whichever way you need. It comes loaded with filters, size optimizations, and formatting options. This makes it extremely powerful in that you can apply all of these things with just a few commands and without having to do anything special with the image prior to uploading.
  • Cloudinary works either by allowing you to save the images in an S3 bucket, for example, or by saving it in their optimized CDN. After trying the former on a prior project, we switched to the latter and haven't looked back. Pretty much zero downtime and speedy delivery of assets.
  • With their built-in viewer, you can dig a little deeper into your assets and also come up with your own organizational structure to more easily keep track of them.
  • Their documentation really helps understand the multitude of features that are available.
  • Their biggest strength is also one of their weaknesses. There is SO much in terms of features and things you can do, that I feel we probably only use about half of what's possible. Organizing all of those features and making you aware of them can be a challenge, despite their good documentation.
  • Their plans can be a bit confusing to calculate since they're based on several quotas on different categories like bandwidth, storage, and transformations. To their credit, they're fairly flexible and allow you to easily upgrade or downgrade plans on demand.

Pros and Cons

  • It is super-fast at serving images, which takes the load off your web services and saves you big-time on file storage space.
  • A powerful and feature-rich API that allows you to transform your images on the fly as they are served up, which could hardly be easier to use.
  • Automatic backup of all your media on your Cloudinary account, allowing you to rest easy that your image and video files are safe.
  • 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.

Pros and Cons

  • Automatically optimizes the images format to support user's browser - e.g. Chrome users get WebP formats
  • Automatically optimizes for quality so you can set up a flag to automatically optimize the quality
  • Cool additional things like face detection, or integrating with other APIs are simple - like adding flags to the URL
  • Currently, they don't have an officially supported Drupal module -so it's quite painful to implement.
  • If you have a site that has a lot of visitors then it's possible to get quite large bills out of the blue if you get a massive spike e.g. black Friday.
  • The UI for the backend and documentation could do with a lot of improvements.
