Named Transformations

Easy-to-understand and share aliases for complex URL-based transformations

  • listing_image is better than w-200,h-200
  • Better understanding across your development team, easier to maintain
  • Prevent misuse of transformations by whitelisting only named transformations
Using Named transformations

Chained Transformations

Chained transformations allow you to use the output from one transformation as an input for another. For example -

  • First, resize an image to 100×100
  • Then rotate to 90°
  • Now add extra padding of white color to make the final image 200×200 to fit into existing layout
