    Angular Cloudimage Responsive

    DocsDemoCode SandboxWhy?

    This plugin detects the width of any image container as well as the device pixel ratio density to load the optimal image size needed. Images are resized on-the-fly via the Cloudimage service, thus offering a comprehensive automated image optimization service.

    When an image is first loaded on your website or mobile app, Cloudimage's resizing servers will download the origin image from the source, resize it for the client's screen size and deliver to your users through one or multiple Content Delivery Networks (CDNs). The generated image formats are cached in the CDN and will be delivered rocket fast on any subsequent request.

    NOTE: Your original (master) images should be stored on a server or storage bucket (S3, Google Cloud, Azure Blob...) reachable over HTTP or HTTPS by Cloudimage. If you want to upload your master images to Cloudimage, contact us at

    To see the Cloudimage Responsive plugin in action, please check out the Demo page. Play with your browser's window size and observe your Inspector's Network tab to see how Cloudimage delivers the optimal image size to your browser, hence accelerating the overall page loading time.


    To use the Cloudimage Responsive plugin, you will need a Cloudimage token to deliver your images over CDN. Don't worry, it only takes seconds to get one by registering here. Once your token is created, you can configure it as described below. This token allows you to use 25GB of image cache and 25GB of worldwide CDN traffic per month for free.

    Step 1: Installation

    using npm

    $ npm install --save ng-cloudimage-responsive

    Step 2: Initialize

    After installing the ng-cloudimage-responsive lib, simply initialize it with your token and the baseUrl of your image storage:

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import { CIModule, CIConfig } from 'ng-cloudimage-responsive';
    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    const ciConfig = {
      token: 'demo',
      baseUrl: ''
        declarations: [ AppComponent ],
        imports: [ BrowserModule, CIModule ],
        providers: [
          {provide: CIConfig, useValue: ciConfig}
        bootstrap: [ AppComponent ]
    export class MyAppModule {}

    Step 3: Implement it

    Finally, just use the ci-img component:

    <ci-img src="img.jpg" alt="Demo image" ratio="1.5"></ci-img>

    NOTE: "ratio" is recommended to prevent page layout jumping. The parameter is used to calculate image height to hold the image position while image is loading.

    edeit in codesandbox



    Type: String | Default: "demo" | required

    Your Cloudimage customer token. Subscribe for a Cloudimage account to get one. The subscription takes less than a minute and is totally free.


    Type: String | Default: "/" | optional

    Your image folder on server, this alows to shorten your origin image URLs.


    Type: Bool | Default: true | optional

    Only images close to the client's viewport will be loaded, hence accelerating the page loading time. The plugin uses ng-lazyload-image library to achieve it.


    Type: Number | Default: 100 | required

    Preload an image even if it's e.g. 100px below the viewport (user have to scroll 100px more to see this image)


    Type: Bool | Default: true | optional

    Applies a nice interlacing effect for preview transition


    Type: String | Default: 'foil1' | optional

    Applies default Cloudimage filters to your image, e.g. fcontrast, fpixelate, fgaussian, backtransparent, rotation... Multiple filters can be applied, separated by "." (dot).

    Full documentation here.


    Type: String | Default: '#f4f4f4' | optional

    Placeholder colored background while the image is loading


    Type: Object


    const ciConfig = {
      token: 'demo',
      baseUrl: '',
      presets: {
          xs: '(max-width: 575px)', // up to 575    PHONE
          sm: '(min-width: 576px)', // 576 - 767    PHABLET
          md: '(min-width: 768px)', // 768 - 991    TABLET
          lg: '(min-width: 992px)', // 992 - 1199   SMALL_LAPTOP_SCREEN
          xl: '(min-width: 1200px)' // from 1200    USUALSCREEN

    Breakpoints shortcuts to use in image size property, can be overwridden.

    Image properties


    Type: String | Default: undefined | required

    Original image hosted on your web server. You can use absolute path or relative to baseUrl in your config.


    The plugin uses a special algorithm to detect the width of image container and set the image size accordingly. This is the recommended way of using the Cloudimage Responsive plugin.

    operation (or o)

    Type: String | Default: width | optional

    Operation allows to customize the behaviour of the plugin for specific images:

    width - to resize with a specific width. This is useful when you want to have a fixed width, regardless of screen size.

    height - to resize with a specific height. This is useful when you want to have a fixed height, regardless of screen size.

    crop - to crop the image around the center

    fit - to resize the image in a box and keeping the proportions of the source image

    cover - to resize the image in a box without keeping the proportions of the source image


    When you use an operation, you must specify the size for each screen size, see below

    Full documentation of all operations available here

    size (or s)

    Type: String | Default: undefined | optional but required when using operation

    Size of an image which is used as a base for creating retina ready and responsive image element.

    Examples (PR - stands for your device Pixel Ratio):



    => width: 250 * PR (px); height: auto;

    [width x height]:


    => width: 125 * PR (px); height: 200 * PR (px);

    [Width and height for different screen resolutions]:

        sm 800x400,
        (min-width: 620px) 200x20,
        md 1000x1350,
        lg 1400x1200,
        xl 1600x1000

    You can drop some breakpoints, for example:

      size="md 1000x1350, lg 1400x1200"/>

    NOTE: if size is not set, the plugin uses a special algorithm to detect the width of image container and set the image size accordingly. This is the recommended way of using the Cloudimage Responsive plugin.

    For example:

    <ci-img src="dino-reichmuth-1.jpg"/>

    filters (or f)

    Type: String | Default: none | optional

    Filters allow you to modify the image's apperance and can be added on top of the resizing features above.

    fgrey - apply a greyscale filter on the image

    fgaussian[0..10] - apply a gaussian blur filter on the image

    fcontrast[-100..100] - apply a contrast filter on the image

    fbright[0..255] - apply a brightness filter on the image

    fpixelate[0..100] - apply a pixelate filter on the image

    fradius[0..500] - create a radius on the corners

    Full documentation of all filters available here

    ratio (or r)

    Type: Number | optional

    It is recommended to prevent page layout jumping. The parameter is used to calculate image height to hold the image position while image is loading.

    To see the full cloudimage documentation click here


    Type: Bool | Default: undefined | optional

    Property allows to override global lazyLoading config for specific images.


    Type: Bool | Default: false | optional

    Allow to specify visibility behavior for SSR. If you use SSR and want to use lazy loading for some images (maybe some images which are not on initial viewport) it's recommended to set emptyOnSsr to true.

    Browser support

    Tested in all modern browsers and IE 11.
