    Another alternative is to use ready-made components, namely imgproxy and Apache APISIX. I already combined them to resize images on-the-fly.
  • Ask HN: How to handle user file uploads?
    10 projects | | 3 May 2024
    In my project[1], I convert all user-uploaded images to high-quality webp and store them like that. I discard the original files after the conversion. I use imgproxy[2] to further resize and convert them on the fly for actual display.

    I don't do videos yet, but I'm kinda terrified of the idea of putting user-uploaded files through ffmpeg if/when I'll support them.

    You should also be using a variety of formats. Unless you need support for old browsers and transparency in the same image, don't use PNG. Stick with jpg, webp and avif. You can setup something like imgproxy to automatically resize and change format of images, or even fit into the space requirements you set.
  • Local image optimization using the Image component.
    1 project | /r/webdev | 18 Apr 2023
    If you look for something universal, you can try API for image optimization (e.g. imgproxy). However, the mechanism is different from build-time optimization.

  • improving our open source image processing tool
    1 project | /r/opensource | 17 Mar 2023
    Hey everyone, seeking some feedback about how to improve our project, imgproxy, an open source image processing tool.It’s designed to reduce costs and remove pricey requirements for all saved images to conform to specific formats. You can read the full list here if you’re curious: In addition to crucial image processing stuff (like resizing, cropping, rotating), it can also sign urls, add watermarks, and a ton of other things.A ton of developers use it, and that’s great. We’re trying to improve it further, so wanted to put out the feelers and see if there is anyone using it (or a similar tool) who could suggest some additional features (or tell about the essential features of your current image processing tool).
