Image resize and thumbnail generator for original images in your AWS S3 Bucket

This service will find PNG, JPG, and GIF original image files in the folder you specify, and will create thumbnail or other sized images within a subfolder, and set the mime-type of the thumbnail. The thumbnail file is named the same as the original image, and it is saved in a subfolder of the original image folder. This service does not use your local bandwidth during the image thumbnail generation process.

Use CloudZip to generate thumbnail size image files from all your original PNG, JPG, and GIF images that are already in S3. The thumbnail image preserves the aspect ratio and filename of the original image. You enter the size of the thumbnail to fit your application. You enter the thumb subfolder where the thumb is saved. This service is compatible with Image View service, use the same subfolder. This example CloudZip Image Viewer HTML for S3 images in subfolders, uses subfolder `thumb`; view the page source to see the image path and name.
