Cloudinary was founded in 2011 by a group of high-tech veterans
who have worked on a huge variety of web projects during the past
two decades and got tired of implementing the same image management
solutions over and over again.
Throughout the years, we’ve experienced the evolution in web
development frameworks first hand, from crude tools to cutting edge
platforms. Nowadays, you can quickly build impressive, fast,
scalable and affordable web applications you could have only
dreamed of in the past.
However, we still found ourselves spending considerable R&D
time managing our services’ images. We never managed to free enough
time to perfect our image management solutions.
They decided to make the time and build a service that would
offer an end-to-end solution to an application’s entire
image-related needs, by developers for developers. Exactly as we’ve
always envisioned it.
This is how Cloudinary was born.
The CEO + CTO (Co-Founders) of Cloudinary
are hard core developers
at heart, and the solution they developed is an end to end image
management platform (for developers and businesses) that has a full
suite of capabilities.
From social (SnapChat to Instagram) to shopping (Amazon,
Walmart) we live in a visual world. And imagery is helping to drive
a visual economy (people see, click and buy).
Cloudinary enables users to manipulate images dynamically to
fit any graphics design. Apply effects, resizing, cropping, face
detection, watermarks and tons of image processing
Itai and Tal have created a platform that enables developers
and companies to take control over their images/videos - and create
a more meaningful and impactful experience for end users - driving
