Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not hesitate, it is not good to doubt, cloudinary offers you the best tool when it comes to storage, editing and delivery of images, videos and files in record time, with a large platform of professionals to assist you 24 hours a day. Do not say no, if you have not tried it. for me it is the tool of this type number 1 worldwide

"Great Cloud based Image Management"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use. We're only using the free version right now, but still are able to do a lot with our images/videos, like overlays, cropping, and so on. Integrates seamlessly with the CMS in use.

What do you dislike?

We're yet to move to the priced version, not sure how the pricing will pan out depending on traffic. Not too much to dislike for now

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely, will recommend signing up for it. Works much better and faster than storing images on the server, and the UI for the platform is very intuitive and easy to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

using it to manage all the media on our company website - images and videos. Also for editing the media like adding overlays, cropping, video edits and so on

What Video CMS solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Versatile tool but needs some polish"

What do you like best?

I'm very impressed with the range of options and flexbility within cloudinary for making transformations - and the speed at which dynamic images are served.

What do you dislike?

The interface and methods to create transformations is clunky, and old looking.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before committing for full usage trial different methods of delivering your iages as the costs can ramp up if everything you serve is dynamic & transformed all the time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using it to serve dynamic product images and banners to our email list which helps personalisation and incresses engagement such as click rate.

"One of the Best Featured Pack CDNs Around"

What do you like best?

One of the best advantages you can have using cloudinary is the automated ways of serving image assets on your websites. From resizing to serving an alterntaive format of the image based on the user's browser is very innovative to increase overall speed load times.

The overall look and feel of Cloudinary is very welcoming and easy to use with a drag and drop area for images, videos and other content. You are not limited to only uploading images, you can upload javascripts and css files as Cloudinary can be your one stop shop for your website's CDN needs.

They even have the ability to upload videos and to manipulate them on demand through the use of transformation , quality and many more options.

What do you dislike?

I do believe that pricing can be a bit better to make it more affordable for SMB but overall the benefits do outweigh the cons

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would also reccomend Rackspace CDN and Amazon AWS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integrating Cloudinary significantly improved overall website load times, along with improving our Google Page speed score and SEO efforts. The improved load time speeds also improved our experience we delivered to our customers leading to increased pageviews per session

On a side note for those of you that are more technical savvy, the images and assets that are served to your user through Cloudinary save and CACHE those items for even faster delivery the next time the same assets are required by the web page.

"Easy to use image management software"

What do you like best?

The integration into our backend is seamless. Cloudinary offers various image enhancement features and quality options. The quality and aspect ratios are on easy to use sliders that don't require any additional training to use.

What do you dislike?

We've had some issues with image quality on the front end of our site using Cloudinary. They stem from a combination of the actual code of our site and Cloudinary image quality controls. Right now we can't use the highest image quality without taking a hit on load times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Cloudinary we were able in increase overall image quality on site as well as more accurately catalog uploaded images for quick searching.

"Probably the best image handling service"

What do you like best?

Ease of use, by far. Everything from adding overlays to facial-recognition based cropping, it's a breeze. I also really appreciate the amount of leniency they have for development environments. I've regularly gone over my developer resources by two-fold and they simply send me an email asking me to tone it down a bit. I love this service.

What do you dislike?

The pricing can be a bit much if you're a high traffic site. We found that we utilized only around 5% of our storage, but were going way over our bandwidth. I know they use AWS for hosting so it might be difficult to shift costs around.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Seriously try it out. There are a few others that do it, but with all the addons and the standard functionality that comes with it, you'll be hard pressed to find anything better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We utilize Cloudinary heavily in our online publications, and being able to seamlessly deal with manipulations and store on a CDN without having to roll our own has been amazing. Cloudinary is a pretty robust platform, haven't seen any slowdowns or issues as of yet.

"Very easy to use"

What do you like best?

This repository is key for all of our digital assets. The folder structures and auto transformations makes it a necessity for us.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the plans and wish they were more customizable (we need more bandwidth, for example, but less transformations).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hosting all of our digital assets on this site in one place helps us to keep track of them and transform them at will.

"Works Great"

What do you like best?

It is very useful an easy. I really like this system and would recommend it. It is good for an average company or small scale. Very insightful and user friendly. Great.

What do you dislike?

Could have more options. It is a little expensive and hard to pitch for that reason. Yes, but it is good even though the price is somewhat annoying.

"Easy to manipulate images through a simple URL"

What do you like best?

Like a super simple image magick through URL

What do you dislike?

The JS widgets could get updated a little more often.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use cloudinary to let users upload an image, and then get the image back in different sizes and shapes without needing to program any of the transformations or store them on my side.

"Convenient Conversions on the Fly"

What do you like best?

Image/Video conversion and manipulation through params.

What do you dislike?

Simply the price. Everything else was rather easy to implement and works reliably.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloudinary allows us to convert (resize, change file extension, watermark, and clip) so to help people without solid tech skills get what they need.
