Cloudinary has released several cool automated settings for image cropping and importantly size reduction on the fly. Daemonite @justincarter has added a bunch of configs to Cloudinary that enable these settings site wide.
Introducing smart cropping, intelligent quality selection and automated responsive images
Every image is unique and every one of your website visitors is different. In a perfect world, we'd like to adapt each image individually to be "just right" for every user. With "just right" being perfectly cropped, using responsive dimensions, correct encoding settings and optimal quality with the best image format.
Specifically, this includes Webtop Admin configuration toggles for:
- Intelligent content-aware encoding - 'q_auto'
- Dynamic format selection - 'f_auto'
- IPTC metadata retention
Applied correctly, this can lead to significant bandwidth savings across the account.
