Faster images increase conversion and thus revenue.

Did you know digital content impacts conversion rates more than you think? The first 4 seconds of your page load time have the highest impact on your conversion rate. Faster images increase conversion and revenue!

Cloudimage resizes, optimizes, compresses and distributes your images lightning-fast over CDN on any device around the world.

You can apply image filters, make custom transformations as well as remove watermarks. Start getting the most out of your images and convert more users thanks to beautiful and fast visuals. Enjoy Visual AI capabilities that can automatically and smartly resize, transform, or optimize your images with features such as background removal and lightning optimization.

Cloudimage embeds lazyloading as well as a progressive loading effect to ensure the best user experience possible on your websites. Our Cloudimage WordPress Plugin leverages the Cloudimage v7 API and offers two different options for making images responsive:

  1. Using standard HTML5 srcscet tags. To use this option your WordPress theme must support natively the HTML5 tags for responsive images. Using this method, images in the WordPress media gallery will be automatically delivered over Cloudimage.
  2. Using the powerful Cloudimage Responsive JS Plugin. This plugin smartly identifies the image container width, and then delivers the optimal image size. There’s no need for your Theme to support responsive images when choosing this method. This plugin also adds lazyloading and progressive loading to your images for an optimal user experience. This option guarantees the lightest possible output code and does not modify the images in the WordPress media gallery.

The Cloudimage WordPress Plugin needs no development: just plug-and-play!

You can easily register for a free Cloudimage account and start enjoying fast and responsive images today. Every month, you get 25GB of CDN traffic and image cache for free. If this limit is exceeded, our teams will contact you and we can explore our different plans! For any small to medium-sized WordPress site, 25GB seems to do the trick.

You can find more information on our paid plans here.

How does the Cloudimage WordPress Plugin work?

The Cloudimage plugin rewrites the WordPress image URLs and replaces them with Cloudimage URLs. Your origin images will be downloaded from your storage, resized by Cloudimage and then distributed over CDN.

You can now also enjoy a statistics dashboard within the Cloudimage plugin configuration page in your WordPress admin!

  4. Navigate to the plugin’s configuration page and input either your Cloudimage token or custom CNAME to complete the setup.


Question 1: How does Cloudimage resize and optimize my WordPress images?

When you first load your WordPress site after the activation of the Cloudimage Plugin, your origin images will be directly downloaded by the Cloudimage management infrastructure. They will then be resized, optimized and delivered over CDN to your final users.

Cloudimage adds an extra layer of image cache (shield) on top of the CDN, in order to make any further request from the CDN to an origin image as fast as possible.

Cloudimage does not store your WordPress visuals permanently. Always keep your images in your WordPress gallery.

Question 2: Why are my images not going through Cloudimage?

If your images aren’t processing through Cloudimage, check if you have cache services like W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache, or others. If this is the case, you will need to reload the cache to enable the transformation of your URL.

If however the problem persists, please contact us directly at:

Question 3: How much does Cloudimage cost?

Cloudimage SaaS offers a free tier subscription for 25GB CDN traffic and 25GB image cache per month. We also offer paid plans with higher CDN traffic as well as image cache allowances. You may find our pricing here.

Question 4: Will my original images be affected?

Cloudimage downloads your images automatically and does not modify your original images.

Question 5: What happens if I deactivate the Cloudimage WP Plugin?

If you were to deactivate the Cloudimage WP plugin, your website would revert to the condition it was in prior to the activation of the Cloudimage WP plugin. We do not apply any permanent changes to your WordPress.

Despite having tried many different solutions for increasing loading speed of images on website, this by far is my favorite tool. Everything works quite well, the customer service are supporting as well.

Would recommend for my friends! I noticed a quicker page load time right away, and installation was simple and straightforward. Support Department responds swiftly and is also quite educational.

Was searching for an image CDN. Tried but realized they are destroying SVG images in a weird way and most of the time images are not loading at all. After contacting support and trying to fix they told me it got fixed (how would they know) – but still no images and broken SVGs. Lets see, may try in future – at the momement i cannot recommend to anyone.
