Images and videos tell a story, persuade and engage potential buyers. But they can significantly impact page load times and conversion rates. Cloudinary enables you to improve the shopping experience and improve the performance of your online store by delivering images and videos, enhanced and optimized for every device, browser and internet connectivity.

Whether you need to apply artistic effects or reduce image weight for faster loading, Cloudinary offers a wide array of manipulations through a web-based console. Using simple controls, you can easily crop, resize, transcode, filter and optimize images and videos to suit the viewing requirements of every user. All media assets are delivered through leading Content Delivery Networks.

A Cloudinary account is required to use this extension. Sign up for free. You can start with a free plan with generous usage limits and when your requirements grow, you can easily upgrade to a plan that best fits your needs. More pricing information available here.


Upload Once, Deliver Anywhere

Upload images and videos from any source and manipulate them dynamically, to deliver each user a version that suits their device requirements.

Optimize Store Performance

Improving page load time leads to noticeable improvements in the shopping experience, conversion rates, and ultimately, your store revenue. Make sure that your media assets load fast by automatically delivering them in the most efficient format, quality, and resolution - depending on the content and viewing browser/device.

Apply Effects and Filters

Enhance the visual appearance of images and videos using a wide range of effects such as image and text overlays, rotations, modified shapes and artistic filters to suit your design needs.

Store Assets Anywhere

Leverage Cloudinary's internal storage mechanism with revision tracking and automatic backup or continue using your existing storage solution by retrieving and accessing assets from the original location.

Deliver Media Assets through Multiple CDNs

Accelerate delivery of product images and videos by leveraging multiple CDNs - Akamai, Fastly and CloudFront - and dynamically switching between different providers to select the best performing network.

Analytics on Usage and Performance

Gain important insights into your media assets with in-depth analytics on performance, bandwidth usage and error monitoring.

Get Up and Running in Minutes

Easily install and start using the Cloudinary extension for free. With just a few lines of code, effortlessly migrate your entire media library to Cloudinary at once or move the media assets on demand.
