Image upload, storage, manipulation and optimization


If you have a large and growing collection of image files and it’s hard to keep track of them all, Publitio has a solution for you! Image management software assures a platform where you can centralize and organize all your digital images and photos.


Upload your photos, graphics, images and visual files in one centralized place. You can access them anytime you want and from anywhere. That’s how you and your teammates can work faster and much easier since collaboration and communication between you and others can be established in just a few clicks.


However, this cloud-based image hosting that we are talking about is a lot more than a simple image library, or cataloging tool allowing you to categorize your assets and keep them in one place. Image management in the cloud also allows you to manage your files and take full control of your images.


Besides different kinds of image manipulations, you can easily set privacy and copyright options to protect your intellectual property. Now let’s take an in-depth look at all the possibilities this image management platform brings with itself.

Image upload, storage, manipulation and optimization

Image formatting


Your image collection probably contains different types of image file formats. From Publitio’s dashboard, you can directly upload your files in their original format. Once you upload your images, thanks to the mouseover effect you can preview your files and choose the one you’d like to modify.


When you open it in a new window, you can change different parameters in the URL, including the file format. For instance, if your image is in png format, thanks to this URL-based transformation, change the end of the file to jpeg. Now, after this simple process of image formatting, you’ll have a new version of the file.

Image manipulation


Images are powerful tools for different types of business. However, they become even more powerful when used correctly. Publitio provides you with best practices for image management. By clicking “Edit” next to your file, you can see different options. You can add public ID, title, description, tags, watermark. Description and tags serve as metadata, allowing you to find the image you are looking for without any problem at all.


In general, it’s pretty flexible because you can make a lot of changes, watermark it, let people download it or not, make it public or private and many other things. In simple terms, you can modify your image for different purposes and to achieve desired results.

Image resizer


Managing images on your app or website includes various tasks. Resizing is just one of them. To resize images with Publitio, you should change width (w) and height (h) parameters. You can change both dimensions, or just one, while the other will change automatically to maintain the aspect ratio. For example, if you add “w_250” to the URL of your file, you’ll set the width of the image to 250 pixels.


How do I resize an image without losing quality


Publitio is powerful enough to maintain the quality of images for some modest resizes. Plus, it’s easy to use it and retain quality. Just like with any other tool for resizing and editing images, if you take a larger file and make it smaller, you won’t lose any visible quality. On the other hand, if you take a smaller picture and try to make it larger, it will probably appear pixelated and blurry.
