Cloudinary Development: The Complete Guide to Getting Started

What's Cloudinary?

Cloudinary is a cloud-based media management service. It allows users to store, adjust, and optimize all images and video in one place offering a number of tools for editing. It is widely used for web and mobile app development by software engineers all over the world.

Cloudinary uses Application Program Interface (API) for integration with web applications and relies on Content Delivery Networks (CDN) for fast content delivery. It allows you to upload an unlimited number of images and videos that you use in your application in a private and secure way. You can expect the service to perform consistent automatic backups. 

Cloudinary helps its users to eliminate excessive software costs by combining simple-to-use tools for image editing and saving up a lot of bandwidth. It’s a simple, yet elegant, solution that allows users to save time and resources and focus on the business areas that matter for the company’s growth. 

Trio uses Cloudinary in the web and mobile application development process to story and adjust images for the projects in progress. We highly recommend this software to our clients because of its affordability, comprehensive editing features, and the wide range of supported formats that include JPG, WebP, SVG, PSD, EPS, PDF, ICO, TIFF, BMP, GIF, and PNG.

Software development requires an easy and optimized way to manage all media in the same place so that every team member can access and follow the updates in real-time. Cloudinary simply eliminates the possibility of miscommunication and double work for the projects in development and simplifies media management for everyone working on it. 

Cloudinary solves the problems of efficiency of content design and management for teams, improves the end-user experience with the application, cuts down on time outlays, and helps to meet deadlines faster.
