This service does not use your local bandwidth during the unzip and image generation process.

How do I UnZip and generate image thumbnails and convert TIFF to PNG images in Amazon S3 ?

Use CloudZip to generate thumbnail size PNG image files from all your original PNG, JPG, TIFF, and GIF images that are contained in a zip or jar file of images. The thumbnail image is created in the same folder as the original image, and preserves the aspect ratio of the original image. You enter the size of the thumbnail to fit your application. You can choose the thumb name appended or prepended to the name of the original image. This service is compatible with the Image View service when you prepend a name prefix, as in this example CloudZip Image Viewer for S3 images with prepended prefixes, view the page source to see the image path and prepended name.

First gather all your original images and create a big zip or jar file of the images, then use the Amazon S3 console to upload your file into your Amazon S3 bucket. Then Sign In and click the Begin Now link you'll be taken to a form where you should enter the following required information in the fields :

After you have entered the above information, click Verify to validate your entries. Next click Pay Now to authorize the transaction and begin the service.

After clicking Pay Now, you'll get an email receipt confirming that your service has started. The actual time to expand your zip file depends on the size of the zip file content and the number of items and folders in your zip. When the service has completed you'll get a confirmation email.

Please refresh your S3 console to see your unzipped files after you get the service completed email.
To access the unzipped content in your bucket from the internet, you may need to enable public access and configure web hosting for your bucket, refer to Amazon's documentation for more information : S3 Hosting Setup and S3 Website Hosting

Features and Benefits of UnZip and create Image thumbnails with TIFF to PNG Image conversion service for Amazon S3

Many content providers deliver a zip file that contains many images with different formats. This service expands your image zip file and generates web thumbnail sized PNG images from original size PNG, JPG, TIFF, and GIF image files. CloudZip creates image files as needed during the unzip including the original image, thumbnails, and any other content in the zip, and sets common mime-type for all files. The thumbnails are created in the same folder as the original image.

Need your TIFF images converted to PNG ? This service will automatically convert most TIFF source image files to full size PNG image files and also generate a PNG thumbnail. For example, if an original TIFF is named 'image1.tif' the converted TIFF to PNG image will be named 'image1.png' and the png is typically a fraction of the size and may be rendered by most browsers. Note: some TIFF format images may not be converted.

This service automates digital catalog image publishing where managing 1000s of huge image files in mixed formats is challenging. Easily use S3 to publish your files as static content. You can host your static catalog and website entirely on Amazon S3. Once you enable your bucket for static website hosting, all your content is accessible to web browsers via the Amazon S3 website endpoint for your bucket.

You should consider using the CloudZip FTP copy to S3 service if you need to copy a large number of big zip files into S3

Just zip up your images, copy to your S3 bucket, and unzip it with CloudZip's Image thumbnail generator and share the urls. You can even create an HTML page to view all your thumbnails and images with the CloudZip Image Viewer service.
