Intelligently deliver lighter, faster images at the highest visual quality and accelerate time to market.
Your customers demand a fast engaging experience across all of your web and mobile properties. Solving your image challenges can streamline your publishing workflows but can also be the key to unlock better business results for your web sites and apps.
Image Manager automatically optimizes each online image for the best combination of size, quality, and file format suited for each image and device and offloads the artistic transformation of derivative assets to the cloud. The result is high quality, engaging web and mobile applications that are also fast and less complex to manage.
What is Image Manager
High-quality images are proven to be effective in driving better engagement online, but it has become increasingly difficult to deliver a consistent experience across desktop and mobile devices. Often times, website performance gets bogged down by images that are too heavy, and developers are wasting too much time and effort designing or managing solutions to create all of the derivative images for their site or app, not to mention trying to solve the puzzle of when to deliver the right image for each and every user.
Image Manager introduces a simple way to automate your image creation workflow and intelligently optimize and deliver the best image every time. Lighter pages, simplified operations, and less derivative images helps you drive higher revenue and engagement, reduce costs, and gain an advantage in mobile and responsive web design strategies. Improve customer experiences by automatically optimizing web images for both maximum visual quality and performance while reducing the cost and effort to transform images for faster time to market.

Perceptual Quality Algorithm
Image Manager lightens the weight of your images to improve performance while maintaining quality by intelligently calculating and applying a precise degree of compression for each image individually.
Auto Convert Image Format
Image Manager will automatically detect and convert images to the best image format for each use case taking advantage of advanced levels of compression that WebP, JPEG-XR, and JPEG 2000 can offer for users on Chrome/Android, iOS/Safari, and IE/Windows software.
Auto-resize for Mobile Screens
Automatically resize images for mobile screens based on the device size so that mobile users are not over-downloading images that are larger (and slower) than they need to be.
