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.

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

You can read more about it and see the demo on the Easy Image product page.
