Pixboost is a Cloud Service that resizes and optimises Raster Images (e.g. *.jpg, *.png, etc) for file size reduction and decreased Load Times. Once an image has been processed, it's file is cached on CDN, increasing the speed at which images can be retrieved on subsequent requests.
URL-based integration
To make integration faster and easier we came up with URL-based integration. Which means all you need to do is to setup Image Source to start using Pixboost.
Please, check out our Quick Start Guide.
https://pixboost.com/api/2/img/[IMAGE_URL]/[OPERATION]?[OPERATION_PARAMS]&auth=[API_KEY]
[IMAGE_URL] The URL of the Original Image you would like to process through Pixboost.
[OPERATION] Pixboost function call
[OPERATION_PARAMS] Pixboost parameters for a function call you are using
[API_KEY] A unique key generated by Pixboost for security purposes
Please, learn more about Pixboost API in our API Documentation.
Image resizing
The Service supports Resize and Crop operations, which also optimises Original Image during it's transformations. Optimisation is also available without the need to change the size of the image.
Please, read API Documentation for more information on scaling images.
CDN-powered instantly
CDN included in all plans. Out-of-the-box. More than 80 locations. Based on Google Platform
More about Out-of-the-box CDN in Pixboost Documentation.
Responsiveness support
Pixboost generates responsive images that supports the device and the screen size on which they are being displayed. You keep only one image, pass it through the Service, and Pixboost delivers it optimized and resized through the Out-of-the-box CDN to a specific browser.
Supporting WebP format for Chrome and Opera. You can read more about Pixbooxt.js Responsiveness Support in our Documentation. You choose URL-based Integration vs Pixboost.js Integration depending on the size of your project and your project needs.
