  • imageflow

    High-performance image manipulation for web servers. Includes imageflow_server, imageflow_tool, and libimageflow

    Storage is via your chosen database of choice, this system is designed to compute the images at time of upload and then store them rather than at client request (because that can lead to significantly higher load at large throughputs and increase latency) I might consider adding other storage backends like a standard file system backend but probably not till other things are done. If you want custom resizing at clients request it might be worth looking at which does the sizing / manipulations at request time rather than ahead of time.
