Simpler URLS for Filestack Transformations

Bethany StachenfeldProduct Updates0 Comments

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):

https://process.filestackapi.com/AhTgLagciQByzXpFGRI0Az/monochrome/ebt3bmzQhWwL79JS5qCU

The New Way:

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.
