Gumlet does not store images on servers. You can store your source images on storage of your choice and retain full control over them. If you stop using Gumlet, the images will no longer be available with us after CDN cache expires.
Gumlet supports following different media storage as source. You can select any of them while crearting 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.
You are required to add Gumlet subdomain through which you want to deliver your images. For example, if your website name is shoestore.com, you can choose
shoestore.gumlet.com as subdomain for serving images.
While creating image source, you can also add default parameters. These are the parameters which will be applied to all images from this image source even when you don't pass them via URL parameters.
Default parameters are overridden when the same parameter is supplied via query parameter. For exmaple, if you set
width as default parameter with value
300, all images served will have width of 300px by default now. If any image is requested with
width=500 in URL parameters, that image will be served with 500px width.
If default parameters are applied on your image, an extra header
x-gumlet-defaultparams is added in response of all images. 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 image from origin. For example, when we get 404 error from your origin server, users will see this image.
This can be useful to maintain UI quality and show a placeholder image rather than browser showing broken image.
