How it works
Built by Evil Martians developers for developers, imgproxy resizes and processes images on the fly and doesn’t consume disk space. It reduces your costs and removes the pricey requirement for all saved images to conform to specific formats

Users generate a great deal of every application’s visual content: avatars, photos, product pictures. With different versions of your product tailored to different screens and devices, managing user uploads becomes a pain. Handling and resizing image files drains your storage, processing resources, and development time. imgproxy can solve this problem once and for all.
How most developers deal with images now:
With imgproxy, everything is simple:
Can be installed in your cluster
- Is a black box
- that is controlled by someone, and
- can be shut down one day.
- It becomes expensive to scale, and
- provides service as is; you can’t change it.
- Is transparent and
- controlled by you only.
- Costs depend on your infrastructure,
- so you fully control scaling.
- imgproxy is free and open source.
Security out of the box
Mass processing of images is potentially dangerous, security-wise. So it is a good idea to consider preventive measures first. imgproxy deals with the most common attack vectors:
imgproxy checks image type and its “real” dimensions and cancels processing if the image is fake or its size is too big—protecting you from GB-sized surprises, waste of processor time and denial of service.
imgproxy protects image URLs with a cryptographic signature, so attackers cannot cause a denial-of-service attack by requesting multiple image resizes.
imgproxy supports authorization by an HTTP header. It can hide the origin of your image to protect it from attackers, while still allowing to serve images from a CDN or a caching server.
Fast as in “instant”
imgproxy uses probably the most efficient image processing library out there, libvips. It is screaming fast and has a tiny memory footprint. See the comparison with some well-known alternatives in our benchmark.
