Image CDN – WordPress CDN Plugin

Image CDN – WordPress CDN Plugin | imageengine | cdn,content delivery network,Image CDN,image optimization


ImageEngine’s Image CDN plugin accelerates your WordPress or WooCommerce performance by optimizing static images and other assets and delivering them through the ImageEngine content delivery network. The plugin automatically tailors images specifically to the end user’s smartphone, tablet or desktop device model and browser, converts them to an optimal image format (e.g. WebP or JPEG 2000), and delivers them via a CDN. To use this plugin with the ImageEngine CDN, get a free trial account here.

How ImageEngine Works

The plugin works by rewriting the URLs to your assets (images, javascript, css, etc), switching your domain for the CDN’s domain. Unlike other CDN plugins, the Image CDN plugin makes it simple to test your configuration before enabling it.

  • When a visitor requests a page, ImageEngine dynamically pulls images from your WordPress origin and optimizes them.
  • At the CDN edge, ImageEngine uses device detection to identify the requesting devices and browser characteristics.
  • Based on this information, ImageEngine will resize, compress and encode images so they are best suited to the end users’ device.
  • The optimized image will then be delivered at the ImageEngine CDN edge. Subsequent requests are served instantly with cached assets stored on ImageEngine’s global CDN.

Users of ImageEngine can also configure the Directives for their assets to control image quality, automatic format conversion and automatic image resizing.

What Makes ImageEngine Better Than Other CDNs or Digital Asset Management Platforms?

  • Delivers optimized images 30% faster than other CDNs or Digital Asset Management platforms.
  • Achieves up to 80% image payload reduction with no perceptible change in quality.
  • Simple to install. Easy to test your configuration before enabling it. No need to move or upload images.
  • Only CDN with true device-aware edge servers to drive superior, fine-tuned optimization.
  • Automatic image optimization of JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG, BMP, TIF into next generation formats like WebP, JPEG 2000, aWebP, or MP4. You can also safely serve non-image files through ImageEngine.
  • Delivers via its scalable global CDN network, with support for HTTPS, HTTP/2, WAF, and DDoS protection.
