Origami Image Service

Optimise and resize images easily

Optimise and resize images.
The right and easy way.

The Origami Image Service can be used to optimise and resize images. You can crop, tint, and convert images in JPEG, PNG, GIF and SVG formats quickly and easily.

The quickest way to get started is to experiment with the URL builder, and try transforming and optimising some of your images. Read the API documentation for more information on all of the available transforms. If you're migrating from Image Service v1, we maintain a migration guide to help you.
