We are always working hard to increase the versatility of the Pixaven Image API. We think our customers, especially within the Asia-Pacific region, will be pleased with our latest addition to a list of supported external storage providers - Alibaba Cloud OSS. With that integration we now officially support seven providers: AWS, GCP, Azure, IBM, DigitalOcean, Rackspace and Alibaba Cloud.
As software engineers we want to automate most of the processes and tasks we have at hand. We aim to build robust solutions that (in theory) should require little to no mainenance efforts and “just work”. Let’s see how we can apply those principles to automatic object expiration and explore different angles to approach the problem of ephemeral object storage.
Our latest addition to the vast array of high-performance filters we offer via the Pixaven API is Duotone - an extremely artistic way of mapping two colors onto the darks and lights of an image. Due to its versality and ease of use, we think Duotone will be a great addition to our platform.
If you’d like to programatically get the metadata pertaining to your Pixaven account you can now easily do so. A newly introduced
/1.0/account endpoint will respond with information about your subscription such as plan level and billing period. You will also receive full information about your monthly quota consumption: total quota, used quota, and remaining quota.
Today, we have pushed a quick and simple update to our image processing API - Image Flipping. With that operation you can flip (or mirror) your images horizontally, vertically or both. We have also updated all our official integrations so you can make use of image flipping right away.
