Where do you host your images?

madza profile image Madza ・1 min read

How do you approach image hosting for image-heavy sites?

Do you use services like Cloudinary, or Cloudflare for caching and CDN or do you have some ther cost-effective solutions?

This guy asks post tons of questions daily, and don't even bother looking at answers then. Something is wrong there.

Docs, I guess. I have built one of my aps using S3 using only docs and some random articles

Just started using Cloudinary for my last project. So far, it's been pretty awesome. Now, if I can just figure out how to get images to automatically upload after being referenced in my Gridsome site, that would be even nicer (so far, I've been manually uploading images as needed, but it would be nice to have a single place to do everything).

I'm using images on my blog.

The blog and the images are in a GitLab repository, and the blog is published on GitLab pages. In front, I've set up Cloudflare.

You don't need CDN in most cases...

I just compress them as .webp and use them at my own dedicated hosting.

Is a good option, but with a service like Cloudinary the API send to the browser the better optimization and supported image format.

Safari (iOS or Mac) don't have support to webp format.

you can set up for fallback .png and .jpeg images for not supported platforms.
