With Libpixel you can build faster without jeopardizing quality and performance
Meticulously crafted for performance, Libpixel isn't like any library that you can just apt-get.
We've spent months building a scalable and reliable infrastructure for image processing so you don't have to.
Pay only for unique images you actually deliver to your users every month, not based on all the images you have. From there on, just pay for the bandwidth used by the CDN.
Trust us, it's much more cost effective than building it yourself!
With image processing locations in both the US. and Europe, images are processed closest to their origin.
And powered by a CDN with 20 edge locations in the US and 16 in Europe, they'll be served from the closest location to your users.
LibPixel works by fetching images from an existing Image Source, processing them on the fly and responding with the modified image.
Specify how you want the image using our simple URL based API, and have them generated instantly.And whether you keep your images on S3, your own servers or only have their public URLs, LibPixel will work just fine.
LibPixel is designed to be fast. If you're not using a service like ours or have built it yourself, it's likely that transit/download time will always be slower than the time taken by LibPixel to process your image requests. So in practice processed images are delivered as fast or faster (due to caching and CDN) than the original image.
