Cloudinary supercharges your images! Upload images to the cloud, deliver optimized via a fast CDN. Perform smart resizing and apply effects.
Great plugin, helpful and reliable....
There is a really BIG "BUT".....
Using Cloudinary is like a Trap...
If you start using this plugin, it's REALLY HARD / Impossible to go back to another host. Migrating your images away from Cloudinary is IMPOSSIBLE.
I decided to host my images elsewhere, which is not possible.
My site is small but the free bandwidth is easily reached, which means payment. They're not very expensive but i find this an almost unethical way of doing business.
They should WARN people before using the services. Now spending a lot of time getting my images back....
That's a pity and really runs an otherwise Great software experience....
Just what I was looking for.
use the function.
The plugin itself is really fine.
The problem is mainly at Cloudinary site: it completely lacks file management tools - or I didn't manage to find them - and this is really annoying.
I created a folder, upload 100 pictures and now want to delete them. I simply didn't find how to do this, except one by one, which is ridiculous.
Hope this is only the beginning and some improvements will come soon.
This plugin is just great. Easy to configure + free for use, with some limitations, of course.
The first thing that simply makes cloudinary better than cloudflare is the ease of use to get it to work.
For example, to configure cloudflare, you need to have ownership of the domain name. But if your using dyndns then your out of luck.
Cloudinary you don't need that, you just register an account with them, copy the api key to the wordpress cloudinary setting, save and your set. So easy.
Then i just mass bulk cloudinary all my images (after i had used ewww image optimizer).
The only problem i've had though, is that cloudinary doesn't seem to add thumbnailed images to my front page post articles..... uncloudinaried images do..... so something is not working there, or there is a lack of a guide how to get that to work.
This plugin is awesome.
Currently only using Cloudflare.
I planned to using Cloudinary and jsDelivr without Cloudflare.
Q1. Still can use Smush.it plugin?
Q2. Do I need configuring the CDN setting in W3 Total Cache plugin?
Q3. Cloudinary compatible with jsDelivr?
Pls advise n Thanks
I'm blown away by the functionality this provides. This is a really great plugin all around.
Suggestions (if you're interested)
- Allowing for adding a full copy to the WP media library (as a backup) would be nice.
- Drop shadow support would be nice too.
Checking this out really made my day. Thank you!
This plugin works great! Would like to see better support for featured images but besides this, it's excellent!
