        I use cloudinary just because it makes responsive images so much easier… but I can’t say the ability to scale to millions of images daily would be important to me. Mainly what’s important is that it’s able to do what I want without me ever having to set up imagemagick.

          One was a number of years back, there wasn’t yet a beaten path for uploading files from Heroku to S3. The other was in place before I joined, I think they did it rather than fight with ImageMagick.

            Thanks for pointing me to rokka! I’m looking to provide an API for resizing and optimization, so they’re of interest to try out and benchmark against.

              My scale is much smaller but I am in the process of switching photo hosts for my personal blog, from Flickr to rokka.io (which is paid) in part because of the better control over resizing and other processing. They combine hosting and (cached) image transformation in a way that works for me.

                Thanks @pushcx! Quick question, how did those commercial projects justify using a third-party API vs running their own microservice?

                1. 2

                  I’ve seen a few of these used by commercial projects, often combined with uploading to S3 buckets or hosting. It’s a viable business if you can reach your customers affordably.

                    I can’t imagine this being of interest to anyone in the states. Probably a good buy for a foreign group that has domain experience.

                      You can choose from different categories.

                          Hi! We’ve recently released our natural language processing and web data extraction API.

                          We have a lot of advantages that make us really unique and different from our competitors:

                          • Summarization feature. Our summarization and multi-language (100+ languages) algorithm can extract and structure the most important information from text, images and even audio files.

                          • News Sentiment Analysis. Our sentiment analysis models are specially trained and optimized for the effective analysis of news articles, while most of our competitors are focused on the analysis of user reviews. Sentiment analysis method supports English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian languages.

                          • Set of web scraping tools. Using our services, you can not only analyze your custom dataset, but also collect your own collection from unstructured sources: extract clean article text and other data from news articles, extract lists of reviews/comments from forums and etc.

                          • Image processing. In addition to analyzing the texts, we also offer image recognition and face detection functions. If you plan to expand your document analysis system with image processing capabilities, you don’t need to find another service provider, as we have both of these components (text analysis & image processing).

                            CompanyHub is a Fully Customizable CRM : Normally when CRMs say they are customizable, they just let you store some fields. CompanyHub goes way beyond that. You can also create custom tables to store any kind of data like Projects, Payments, Schools, Properties, Courses etc. Records from different tables can be associated. You can change the labels (like change ‘Company’ to ‘Hospital’), filter records by any criteria, change columns and do reporting on any table / field.

                              I’m looking for entrepreneurs, or company representatives, who are interested in hiring latin american remote workers (in spanish) to fill vacancies or do freelance jobs.

                                      Loved the article, and particularly liked this quote:

                                      “Solutions Exist” does not mean “Problem Solved.” Even though many backup solutions were available, most people did not back up their data.

                                      1. 2

                                        As a guy who did similar tech, I liked this article because they mostly ignored tech. They just constantly listened to users thinking out the box to fit something around their needs, stated and unstated. Many projects in this space are still focusing on better ways to do tech without doing that part.

                                        1. 1

                                          I’ve been reporting their posts as spam. Not only are the articles irrelevant for this website, but they were written like someone was just like “Hey what are popular keywords people are searching for? Let me just go down the list and follow the formula and write one for each of these keywords.” Sites like these (and the people continually sharing them) have been watering down the value of the site IMO. Granted, there isn’t a lot of great quality content in the bootstrapping world so it’s hard to fill it with that
