Image resizing web service

Go To


Does someone know a good web service to resize images ? Either an open source (PHP/Python/Ruby) application, or a company providing a web service api.

Nope. Flickr doesn't have any way to modify images on their site other than rotation - endolith 2009-07-24 16:06


Make your own service at Utility Mill ( Here's one that I wrote that adds a simulated gallery wrap - Define your own interface, parameters, processing logic, and you get not only an interactive web service, but you also get a callable API.

I know what can be done with PHP or Ruby with ImageMagick or GD but I'm looking for an external web-service api. I don't want this in my web app ! And if I could have resizing on-demand like gravatar as a url parameter or something similar it would be great - user123562 2009-06-16 13:35
I've taken a look at Smart Image Resizer it's a script and I'm looking for a standalone app/service. Thanks for your answer answer anyway - user123562 2009-06-16 13:42
