Simpler URLS for Filestack Transformations

- June 27, 2016


No longer do you need to include your Filestack API key in your file URL when transforming images, videos, audio files, or documents.

As long as the file you are transforming has a Filestack URL or handle, you can now simply write (https://process.filestackapi.com) / (desired transformation parameters)/ the file handle or URL.

The Old Way (which still works):

We hope this saves you a bit of time, and helps keep your code simple and clean. If you prefer the original way or don’t want to change your code, no worries. The original method of constructing URLs will continue to function as always.
