With Filepicker, the days of editing images in Photoshop are coming to an end. Once you upload images to Filepicker, you can edit that image directly from its URL.
Filepicker makes it ease to work with user content by enabling image post-processing. That way, regardless of what type of file a user uploads from the Cloud or a local device, you can be sure it’s in exactly the right format that your site needs.
Check out this image. Creating contrast in this photo was easy. The developer didn’t even have to open the image.
To convert an image that’s been uploaded to Filepicker, all you have to do is append “/convert” to the Filepicker file URL, along with query parameters specifying what you want to change:
You can resize images that are uploaded on Filepicker by setting new image widths and heights. Add &fit=max to restrict the file being displayed larger than it’s actual size.
Blurring and sharpening images that are uploaded on Filepicker even allows a blur amount parameter to modify the amount of blur, and uses the convert endpoint, so normal usage applies.
Filepicker allows for image conversion using: fit, crop, align, format, filter, quality, rotate, watermark, and waterposition. Make sure to try out all the convert methods for all your image conversion needs.
