Processing limits

This section describes the limits one should consider when implementing our image processing.

Core operations

When applying any of the processing operations, add at least one of the following: resize, scale_crop or preview.

Output dimensions

The dimensions you specify for the last operation should not exceed 3000x3000 pixels. You can increase that limit to 5000x5000 pixels by explicitly setting your image format to JPEG in your URLs, /format/jpeg/.

Simple rotation

When the only processing option you want to apply is a rotation, consider using the preview control without any arguments. When you use any of the processing operations, we autorotate your image according to its EXIF orientation.

Animated images

Animated images are treated as static by the processing engine, consider checking out our GIF Processing optimized animated images delivery.

Size limit

We don’t provide on-the-fly image operations for huge images (greater than 75 Mpx in resolution) and for files uploaded in the multipart mode, see widget options: those can only be delivered via CDN as-is.

We’re always happy to help with code, integration, and other stuff. Search our site for more info or post your question in our Community Area.
