Cloudinary, a provider of solutions for managing images and video in the cloud, is offering HTTP/2 support, enabling developers to further optimize the user experience. To take advantage of HTTP/2, Cloudinary users don’t have to do a thing – it’s been automatically integrated into the online tools.
Websites have changed dramatically over the past several years, featuring more images and video. But the underlying HTTP protocol hadn’t kept pace, until the IETF’s recent approval of the HTTP/2. The goal of HTTP/2 is to improve website performance, reducing the amount of bandwidth required and latency, while making it easier for developers to use secure connections.
The adoption of HTTP/2 was initially slow. But since January 2016 more sites have announced plans to move to HTTP/2 or are offering true support of the protocol. For example, both Wikipedia and Blogspot announce in May that their sites are now supporting HTTP/2. The graphic below from HTTP/2 Dashboard illustrates the greater adoption since the beginning of the year, and enables you to interactively see how many domains have announced support for HTTP/2, and those that offer partial or true support at any given time.

Even the most talented developer knows that a great website is time-consuming to build and a challenge to maintain.

The cloud-based solution takes care of the entire image management pipeline, enabling image upload; providing a rich set of manipulation and optimization capabilities; and offering cloud storage, administration and super-fast CDN delivery.

Web apps are awesome, but many are not optimized for mobile, or are done so in ways that leaves much to be desired. These days, a poor mobile experience can quickly drive away users and kill engagement. While app users’ attention spans are shortening, they increasingly demand truly native mobile app experiences. Furthermore, across the globe, the concept of “mobile-first” has cemented its place as the de facto for startups and enterprises alike. Here we find a rapidly growing need to turn existing web apps into mobile apps and this creates unique challenges and opportunities for web designers and developers.

Cloudinary Introduces Fully Automated Content- and Context-Aware Image Adaptation Solution
Adapting an image to fit the graphic design on various devices and browsers, while optimizing performance, is both an art and science. But for most web designers, it’s a laborious process and almost impossible to accomplish when you’re dealing with thousands of images – or more – for a single site. Cloudinary is eliminating all of these challenges with its new content- and context-aware image adaptation capabilities, which fully automate image management, including cropping, adjusting quality, determining responsive breakpoints and selecting the proper format.
Cloudinary has long been known for its ability to simplify image management. But the solution still required developers to identify the cropping parameters, encoding settings and various resolutions for responsive images before the images could be dynamically adapted. With full automation built into the solution, users can now upload a single high-resolution copy of each image. That image is then automatically adapted in real-time – without any manual intervention – to focus on the most important region of the image, at the optimal quality and encoding settings, and responsively delivered on any device, at any resolution.
Cloudinary includes an array of innovative automated features, including:
- Content-Aware Cropping – Leverages a new content-aware cropping algorithm, which uses a combination of heuristics, Cloudinary automatically detects the region of interest in every image and then crops it on the fly using dynamic URLs to fit the graphic design and layout, on any device, without losing focus on important content.
- Intelligent Content-Aware Encoding – Cloudinary automates the file size versus quality trade-off decision by analyzing every image to find the best quality compression level and optimal encoding settings based on the image content and the viewing browser. By doing so, you will have a perceptually fine image with a minimized file size.
- Responsive Images – Cloudinary can determine the layout width of an image on a user’s device and the density of their screen, then decide how big of an image that user will need, and select and deliver an optimal resource – all at the CDN level. Alternate, re-sized versions of images are generated with the help of Cloudinary’s Responsive Images Breakpoint algorithms. These alternate versions are cached on the CDN and selected-from on the fly — all from a single URL.
- Format Negotiation – Cloudinary optimizes image delivery by dynamically selecting the most efficient format, based on the content and viewing browser, and converts the format in real time.
By providing full automation, Cloudinary is taking all of the guesswork and manual intervention out of the process, freeing web developers and graphic designers to focus on their core missions.
