Gumlet does not provide an image storage facility. You can store your original images on the storage of your choice and retain full control over them. Gumlet does not modify your original images. You can always go back to serving current images.
Sign Up or Login to your Gumlet account and click the "+ Add Source" button to get to the below screen.
Gumlet supports the following different media storages as sources. You can select any of them while creating a source and provide appropriate credentials.
Google Cloud Storage
You can read more about these storage systems and how to configure them on our help page about storage systems.
A content delivery network (CDN) will be used by Gumlet to accelerate the delivery of your images and other static files. Free and Pro Plan users can choose Gumlet CDN, which has 8 Point of Presence (PoPs) worldwide. Business, Appsumo lifetime deal, and Enterprise users can choose AWS Cloudfront as a CDN option.
You are required to add the Gumlet subdomain through which you want to deliver your images. For example, if your website name is "example.com", you can choose
example.gumlet.io as a subdomain for serving images. Kindly note that the choice of subdomain does not have any impact on SEO or performance.
To create a Subdomain (+ free SSL) to improve your branding and SEO, please refer to our Custom domain (CNAME+SSL) guide.
While creating an image source, you can also add default parameters. These are the parameters applied to all images from this image source even when you don't pass them via URL "Get" parameters.
Default parameters are overridden when the same parameter is supplied via the query parameter. For example, if you set
widthas default parameter with value
300, all images served will have a width of 300px by default now. If an image is requested with
width=500in the URL parameters, that image will be served with 500px width.
If default parameters are applied to your image, an extra header
x-gumlet-defaultparamsis added to the images' responses. This will help you identify which default params are applied and debug issues in image delivery.
This image will be delivered when we can't fetch images from the origin. For example, when we get a 404 error from your origin server, users will see this image.
This can help maintain UI quality and show a placeholder image rather than a browser showing a broken image.
