Image uploader easily handles images of any size
Even weak smartphone cameras can take pictures that are far too large for a standardly configured website. Why upload a 2 MB JPEG file when it can be easily resized to 100 KB? Developers can effortlessly gain that 20 times increase in upload speeds with Aurigma’s Upload Suite and even better, do it in a way that is automatic and saves server-side processing.
Utility at your fingertips
Upload Suite’s image uploader can be quickly configured to accommodate any developer’s needs. They can send only resized content to the server. They can send resized content and the original file. They can send several resized copies, for example a small icon, a thumbnail, and a resized copy that is far more web-friendly. There is absolutely no limit to the image upload utility that can be configured. With the proper Upload Suite edition, any number of resized copies can be configured in every file and any output image size can be specified.
While our competitors’ image uploaders struggle and fail with large originals, Aurigma’s Upload Suite will reliably manage image uploads with originals of any size. Our proprietary technology provides great performance and sacrifices nothing in image quality.
Versatile image upload workflow
Developers can optimize complex workflow management to streamline the image upload process. For example, when the uploader has been configured to generate several copies of each image—such as uploading thumbnails and also the originals—the image uploader can enhance workflow speed by uploading all the thumbnails first, and then uploading the originals afterwards on the next page. Users can thus complete their order without having to wait while all their images upload.
Image upload configuration and manipulation
Taking advantage of client-side resizing before uploads to save server-side processing resources is not the only optimization offered by Aurigma’s exceptional image uploader.
If the final images need to be presented with a specific aspect ratio, developers can force photos to be cropped with the built-in editor. Or, if it makes more sense for their application, photos can be automatically cropped. And the aspect ratios aren’t fixed, they can easily be set to freehand if that is desired.
Photos taken in portrait orientation can be rotated before they are uploaded. If the original image was taken with sufficient orientation sensor and EXIF information, it can be automatically rotated.
Configurations allow watermarks to be added before image uploads by the website’s users. Image logos or text strings can be set with font settings. And watermarks can be added to some images and not to others, for example they can be added to the original but not to the thumbnail.
EXIF metadata in JPEG files can be extracted and sent to the server along with the original files. This saves server resources by eliminating the need to parse the EXIF metadata there.
EXIF fields can even be copied to the resized images by the image uploader. This ensures they are not lost during the resizing process. Or, if it makes more sense, the EXIF metadata can be stripped out entirely to save space.
