@bentossell I had the same thought. I had to click API page to get details. Nonetheless I liked the service and clear documentation of their api

Very interesting. How would you compare to imgix?
Jack LevinMaker@jack_levin · CEO @Nventify & former Googler
@menimor I think in some ways Imgix might be better, and in same cases Imagizer will be, for example, I just ran a resizing test on the same image (from imgix asset library), and Imagizer appears to be 3x faster for uncached resizing transformations, here is the test data: Pricing wise, Imgix charges for bandwidth and accessed master files, which means even if you have very low bandwidth usage you will still be charged master files (if they are accessed even once). Imagizer follows pay as you go model, e.g. you are only charged for API access, $1 for 1,000 - this makes it very simple to budget the costs. Depending on how large or small your resulting files are, Imgix or Imagizer would win on price. E.g. Imagizer wins on higher resolution files, but Imgix may win on smaller resolution files since they account for bandwidth in GB transferred. I think Imagizer has a more flexible model, and just simpler to understand. Imagizer has image recognition capabilities, for example, we can recognize dog breeds: {"Name":"Dog","Confidence":92}, {"Name":"German Shepherd","Confidence":92} Imagizer knows with 92% confidence that its sees a German Shepherd >:)

@jack_levin this is an amazing answer. Thank you for taking the time to write this. We currently use imagix, but on a very small scale. We have a ticket in the backlog to look into alternatives, will def add imagizer to the list.

@menimor Awesome! We will be happy to support you guys. This video might be helpful on how Vango Art uses Imagizer in their AWS stack:

So I signed up and pricing is: Plan Details $1.00 per 1000 requests Doesn't seem like they have a free plan. How it works: You give them a url or s3 bucket where your images are hosted and they pair that with a subdomain of your choosing. When you request the image, you attach various query params to the url to edit the image. (ex. h**p://HOSTNAME/image.jpg?width=200). Full list of operations can be found here

@justingosan There is a $15.00 credit added to each new account, which makes it free for 15,000 transformations or any API requests.
