What do you like best?

During our push to serve optimized images from our online store, we did not have the resources and time to convert all our current store product images. There was also the issue of browsers not supporting WebP and the overhead required to check compatibility and deliver either format of an image, was daunting. ImageKit was our saving grace as their service automatically selects the best format to deliver an image based on original format and device-support without our marketing team having to manually reformat images. Integrating ImageKit was made easy by their well structured documentation, which I referenced to configure our web server as an origin in the ImageKit dashboard. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only limitation is the hard cap when on the free plan. This made that we needed to monitor the usage and rewrite the integration before the images were not served. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Imagekit is the best offering on the market when it comes to getting image transforms and delivery up and running quickly. Their docs are amazing well organized and it's easy to get up and running on their system. Took me a few hours and we were good to go, speeding up our site and server significantly.

Their customer service is also next level. I was talking with their founders immediately when trying to create a complex custom transformation that was crucial for our product. They are fast, responsive, friendly, and go above and beyond for you! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far. They even have a generous free tier so it's great to just start out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Hard to do custom image transforms (cropping, overlays etc) and costly and time consuming to set up a CDN. They solve both issues in one service! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Support team were fantastic to deal with, helped us move/onboard sites over to imagekit and understand use cases for certain features. Their dashboard is simple and quite intuitive and you're emailed regular weekly/monthly reports. Their team also offer to help look through the account to help you make the most out of the platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

If I'm picky I'd like to see their custom domain feature be automated to save on a support ticket - but they answer them within a few minutes anyway. Perhaps some more best practice documents which would save on support tickets from my end? Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Probably best to shoot their support team a msg to check over your integration especially around origin and endpoints. We made the mistake of not prioritising them correctly which led to some images being blocked, but it was quickly resolved by support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We needed a platform to help scale and transform images to help improve page load speeds. We looked looked and tried competitors like imgix and cloudinary but eventually signed on with imagekit because they were able to help get us running very quickly and the platform was more intuitive than the two mentioned.

What do you like best?

The fact that is optimizes image format based on the client requesting it is very clever and useful. Makes things like cross browser support much easier.

The support team answers fast, and takes feedback about the product very seriously.

Also, doing transformations on read, instead of write, makes the product a lot more versatile, and lowers operational costs, while allowing each image to be perfectly tailored for each particular scenario. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'm missing support for videos, and maybe some moderation features.

It would be cool to have an integration with AWS Rekt without having to use S3 as backend.

It would also be great to have more regions available. Maybe sao paulo. Using it for South America, you can feel the latency, although it is not a deal breaker at all. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you will handle animated WEBP files, pay attention to that, as they may need some special treatment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I'm storing images users share on a platform. It has web, android and iOS apps.

ImageKit made it a lot easier than the provider we used before. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The transformations. They are literally a saviour. My site was totally unusable before this, as the images uploaded were of high quality (around 2MB). By using a combination of width, height and lazy load transform combinations, my sites load super fast and its a buttery smooth experience. Really simple to integrate into my react app as well with a single line of code.

Really responsive team and customer support as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I can't really think of much. They are honestly providing an absolutely necessary service and probably taking a monetary hit themselves to keep this going. So kudos to the entire team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it before using any other services out there for image optimisation. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Images load really fast without a loss of quality. This is super imperative while building a project that supports multiple websites which upload high quality images. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

ImageKit was easy to integrate with our product and shaved many weeks of development time which would have otherwise gone in building the same features. The support team was prompt in responding to our queries. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the advanced product features like transformation chaining have a slight learning curve. However ImageKits support team will help with technical doubts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our in-house image-watermarking and image resizing solutions needed to be scaled and required more features. We found ImageKit to be a robust drop-in replacement that saved us a lot of development time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The part I like the most it that it worked as advertised: after a simple registration, a quick change in the image URLs made the high-traffic pages on our website blazingly fast. No downtime since we use the service. One more thing: despite the name, it is also possible to deliver non-image files which is an extra bonus. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing particular to comment, ImageKit covers what we need. There is nothing to dislike about a service that works as advertised (and better). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for an image CDN which is simple, efficient and reliable: this is the one. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our website has a number of high traffic pages that are visited across the world. We regard achieving a fast response time as critical to great user experience. At the same time, we want to ensure that we treat internet bandwidth as the valuable resource it is. ImageKit has helped us meet our response time targets, and as far as bandwidth required, we have seen a 40% reduction. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I have a blog site, which have around 2000 images and growing. Out of it 1K are served by imageKit and other 1K served by a competitor. I don't see any difference between the two and the images are loaded super-fast.

But the one great difference is that imageKit only consumes 110 MB bandwidth, in comparison to 2.11 GB by the competitor. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing as their is no downside in using imagekit and planning to add more images for my website in it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It's a great service if you have a lot of images in your website and want them to load fast, around the world. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Since my website https://thewebdev.tech/ is a blogging site. It have a lots of images, more then 2K. I cannot add them locally as it will slow down the website. The CDN of imagekit loads my images fast even on slow networks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Looks like there is a big jump from free to paid. It would be nice to have a smaller paid plan to ease the gap. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Endpoints connected to non-static image sources. This enables us to do some really cool & fast dynamic image generation. Without Imagekit, our dynamic images would be not very performant, which leads to an overall slower website experience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's not so easy to understand where are we using all our bandwidth within ImageKit. ImageKit dashboard provides have a monthly view with the highest consumption resources, but as we try to adjust things, it's hard to see if they're working until the next month. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Faster image delivery through an Image CDN, better image processing (smaller file size), cache for dynamic URLs. Much faster page load, happier clients. Specially in mobile/3G connections, this is much more noticeable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I'm not a developer but I was able to use imagekit with basic html skills. It has saved me a ton of bandwidth and more importantly, it has made my pages load faster which makes my customers happy.

image transformation based on query parameter Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Just 2 things

1. There should be some more pricing plans it's like from $0 to $49 per month.

2. Some features missing in imagekit-React SDK Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

some of the features which we like the most

1. Advanced smart cropping which automatically identifies the most important part in image and crops the image around that part.

2. URL-based image transformations, I personally love this feature because now I can store actual image link and transform them on client side based on my requirement.

3. Overlays are great. We can overlay multiple images, text and colored rectangles on original image directly from the URL. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
