Differences that matter

Main reasons to choose TwicPics


Do you prefer a plug&play solution?

ImageKit only performs image resizing and compression according to rules you specify manually.

You have to choose the breakpoints, specify all the variants of the image in your HTML code as srcset attributes or source elements inside tag, etc.

On the contrary, TwicPics is a plug & play solution. We understand the web page CSS context and carries all the necessary transformations automatically. It also goes much further than the basic resizing. TwicPics’s rich functionality like lazy-loading, LQIP, smart cropping enable you to provide top-class user experience with no effort.
