JAVA 2.0.0 and PHP 3.0.0 for you!

 

New

  

Our developer integrations are updated with the latest version of JAVA and PHP SDKs.

The new versions of these SDKs were long due and now implement all the new APIs and new parameters for existing APIs, along with the ability to expose raw response body and headers for better debugging.

Video Webhooks

 

New

  

ImageKit's Video Webhooks are live, which can help you stay on top of your video transformation requests for better development and user experience.

Video Webhooks trigger notifications to your servers from when a transformation is initiated to when it is completed. These notifications help you set up an end-to-end video encoding pipeline and track the status of your video transformations.

Conditional Transformations are live!

 

New

  

Your business might be receiving hundreds of images with different characteristics (height, width, aspect ratio, etc.) from various sources every day. These could be from your users, photographers, stock photography websites, graphics team, and other sources. And these images must fit into the set dimensions available on your platform (website, apps, etc.).

This makes standard transformations unsuitable for the varied images received. Conditional Transformations allow you to specify conditions based on the input image's properties and the transformation to be done if a condition is met or not, directly in the image URL.

A standard transformation URL looks something like: [https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/tr:w-300,h-300/default-image.jpg ]

However, when you use Conditional Transformation, your URL will look like: [https://ik.imagekit.io/demo/tr:if-ar_gt_1,w-200,if-else,w-300,if-end/default-image.jpg ]

New

  

Images and videos are critical for your online business. At ImageKit, we are committed to improving our technology, systems, and processes to provide world-class infrastructure for your media management and delivery requirements.

In that direction, **ImageKit is now ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certified. **

Single Sign-On

 

New

  

We are taking our authentication process to the next level with Single Sign-On. This will allows users to log in to ImageKit with a single unique ID provided through a trusted Identity Provider (IdP).

This will allow you to have a centralised control of user management. You can manage users in your organisation and assign ImageKit roles from central Identity Provider (IdP) platform.

Note: This feature is available to paid users.

URL-Rewriters

 

New

  

Migrating from one service to another involves work. ImageKit wants to make this migration process as minimal effort as possible.

We have introduced URL rewriters which translate your pre-existing transformation parameters written in the syntax of your previous service provider to ImageKit's syntax. This will allow you to continue using your existing URLs with no changes when moving to ImageKit.

Note: Currently we support rewriting URLs from Cloudinary's parameters to ImageKit's transformation parameters. More to come!

What else can you do?

Take control of your usage with Billing Alerts

 

New

  

We understand that nobody likes surprises with billing. Our new Billing Alerts will help you avoid such surprises.


How will Billing Alerts help you?

With the help of this feature, you can set a threshold bill amount that you’re comfortable with. In case your upcoming bill exceeds the threshold bill amount, an email nudge will be sent to the email ID associated with the ImageKit account. This way, you can stay in control of your usage.

You can activate this feature from the Billing Center of your ImageKit account. You can find more information here.

Secure your ImageKit account with Multi-factor authentication

 

New

  

You must be using ImageKit on your live websites and apps. Multiple users might access the ImageKit dashboard, the central place for all your media uploads, external origin configurations, delivery settings, and more. Keeping the dashboard secure therefore is of utmost importance.

While having a strong password helps secure access to the dashboard, we have now added multi-factor authentication to ImageKit.


How to enable MFA?

  1. If you have Administrator privileges on your ImageKit account, you can enforce MFA for all the users in your account from the User Management page.

  2. Every user can enable MFA for their account from their User Profile page.


How does MFA in ImageKit work?

Once MFA is enabled for your account, either by the account administrator or on your own, ImageKit would send a unique code to the email ID associated with your account after you enter the correct login password.

You will need to provide this unique code in the form that comes up on the next screen to access the dashboard.
