It's no secret that we believe our image processing and delivery is one of the quickest tools for developers on the market. Quite often we get asked 'but how quick is Libpixel?' and 'how do you guys compare against your competitors?'. Well we decided it was time to run a test, first starting with Imgix.
Plate is a SaaS web building platform. We started out as an easy to use frontend-based cms, but we've grown towards a platform that offers a solid base for web building with data and content modelling capabilities, portal functionality, progressive web apps, etc, while still offering an easy frontend cms for end users. We are now working on Plate with a team of 12 people, and we're based in The Netherlands.
At BrideWorthy, we receive thousands of high definition photos from vendors to showcase their business and work portfolios. At first, we are using our custom image processing service which uses ImageMagick library for resizing and transforming images before saving it to AWS S3. This worked fine with a steady volume of images to process, but as soon as our content grows, it became harder to maintain and scale. That's when we found Libpixel.
With LibPixel, we’ve been able to simplify our decisions. It’s an obvious need for us to be capable of serving images that are optimized for any screen size, regardless of pixel density. So, for example, when we looked at a CMS for our site, we knew right away that we didn’t need to worry about the image serving capabilities it provides because we knew we’d serve them through LibPixel.
A Finnish digital business consulting company, Kisko Labs has been building tools on the web with Ruby on Rails since 2007, arguably the most renowned Rails company in the country. We sat down with Vesa to discuss how they use Libpixel at Kisko Labs and why they’ve been a supporter from the early days.
We're thrilled to be bringing you a redesigned Libpixel. We first went live back in August 2015 and a lot has changed since... apart from our brand. It was time Libpixel got a lick of paint and we hope you like the new dark theme, logos and overall feel. So, let's take you back to the start as a way of reintroduction.
