guideEasy Image - overview

Easy Image is a service that takes care of image uploads. It reduces the effort required on your part to build a complete modern editing solution with support for embedding images.

Easy Image guarantees that all images inserted into your content are responsive. With a single image upload, several optimized versions of the image are created after upload by CKEditor Cloud Services, for different sizes of displays. All this is transparent to the end user who uploaded the image. Rescaled and optimized images are delivered through a blazing-fast CDN.

Responsive images with Easy Image.

Easy Image is a service that runs in the cloud, however, it also requires the client-side part to operate. At this moment there are three integrations available: for CKEditor 5, CKEditor 4 and inside Letters.

# Easy Image for CKEditor 5

The Easy Image plugin is included in all CKEditor 5 Builds. No special steps are required to use it, apart from configuring the CKEditor Cloud Services access.

See the Better images section of the “What’s new in CKEditor 5?” article for a few short demos of image uploads with Easy Image. Refer to the Easy Image integration guide for more information.

# Easy Image for CKEditor 4

Starting from the CKEditor 4.9 release, CKEditor 4 comes with an optional plugin called Easy Image that provides a similar modern user experience as the feature available in CKEditor 5.

See the working Easy Image product page in CKEditor Examples and refer to the Easy Image Functionality Overview and Easy Image Integration guides for more details.

# Easy Image in Letters

Easy Image is included in Letters, so there are no extra steps needed to use it.
