The All-In-One Toolbox For Your Images
TwicPics is a fast, on-demand, URL-based image processing API. It offers all the transformations you need to generate custom-sized variations of any image on the fly.
The TwicPics API has been designed to make your life easy. In addition to straightforward transformations such as "resize" or "crop", it provides helpers like "cover" and "contain" that mimic the behaviour of their CSS counterparts. Generating thumbnails has never been so simple. You also have the ability to chain transformations or to use ratios and percentages when pixels are inadequate. Feel free to browse the documentation and see how expressive the API can be.
Content Driven & Device Adapted
All images are sized to the pixel. Each pixel displayed on screen corresponds to a single pixel in the image, no more, no less. We're talking physical pixels here as TwicPics takes care of pixel density for you.
TwicPics knows CSS : object-fit, background-size, background-attachment, no matter how complex your CSS rules are, TwicPics will determine when, where and how to crop and resize your images.
TwicPics reduces bandwidth usage using modern compression techniques while preserving the visual quality of your images. It also delivers WebP images to browsers that support it : that's a 35% file size reduction for 74% of your users.
TwicPics is smart enough not to load images that are offscreen. It observes user actions, your own scripts and changes in style to determine when to request an image, saving valuable bandwidth up front and making your pages load in a snap.
Each customer has a different display and your responsive designs will adapt to that. However, determining where to crop an image which aspect ratio may drastically change from one device to another used to be a tedious, repetitive task. Not anymore. TwicPics Smart Crop will determine where the focus of your image actually is and crop accordingly, all on its own.
Delivery Best Practices
It's not just about delivering pixel-perfect, highly optimized images. It's also about how those images are being delivered. Network performance is paramount here and boy does TwicPics deliver!
Your images are delivered from a location as close to the user as possible. Each image TwicPics generates is duplicated on servers spread all around the globe. Latency is reduced to a minimum.
Your images are delivered using HTTP/2 over TLS for best performances. With no cookie ever and no more meta on your images, network overhead is on a diet!
TwicPics applies a caching strategy that is as aggressive as possible. Not only are images generated cached on our servers for the next user but TwicPics also relentlessly triggers browser caching so that a user never downloads the same image twice.
