Thanks 😉 We are looking for a self hosted solution. We have some sites using Thumbor ( with rewriting image urls to point to the thumbor server. I was just wondering if someone has different approaches 🙂

thumbor - open-source smart on-demand image cropping, resizing and filters

Thumbor is a smart imaging service. It enables on-demand crop, resizing and flipping of images. It features a very smart detection of important points in the image for better cropping and resizing, using state-of-the-art face and feature detection algorithms (more on that in Detection Algorithms).

Thanks for your replies. Well we are already using imagick, otherwise some large images wouldn't work at all. It's a real problem if the process times out as imagick is not properly cleaning up temporary files… (and those temporary files seem to be uncompessed image files…)


Hi everybody. I was just wondering about your approaches regarding image scaling on pages with lots of images. We do have some pages with lots of images that need to be scaled in different sizes (srcset). As this happens on first rendering of the page, this is often an issue in terms of execution time.
