Dedicated Infrastructure at Your Service

Send all your images to the powerful, cutting-edge hardware powering Kraken.io and get them optimized in no time. We selected dedicated hardware specifically for the resource-hungry task of image optimization, so optimizing all your images will not consume a single CPU cycle on your own machines. Just send your images to us, we’ll do the work. It’s that simple.

More About our Technology

Web Interface PRO

Paste a list of image URLs into a simple text area and Kraken.io will download them all, optimize them, and give you back a ZIP archive. Enter a website URL into the Page Cruncher and Kraken.io will grab all the images it finds there, including background images from CSS, optimize them, and give you back a ZIP archive. If you like, you can have the images placed into a folder structure matching that of each image URL. Quick, simple and fun.

Image Resizing

Many images are larger, in terms of dimensions, than they need to be for a given use-case or purpose. When you need to generate sets of images in different sizes or dimensions, our easy-to-use image resizing interface has you covered. Just specify your required dimensions and pick one of several strategies for resizing your images, prior to optimization.

Kraken.io ZIP Uploader

Upload a ZIP archive by dragging it into our Web Interface. Kraken.io will decompress it, optimize all images found within the archive and notify you once the job has completed. A huge convenience if you have a large number of images to optimize in one go, or if you want to keep your folder structure intact. You can even close your browser window and come back later to download the processed ZIP archive.

No Vendor Lock-In

Using a CDN? Kraken.io does not force you to use any particular vendor, giving you the freedom to change your CDN provider whenever you like. Kraken.io even supports pushing optimized images to your favourite Cloud Storage provider like AWS S3, Rackspace CloudFiles, Microsoft Azure and SoftLayer, allowing for even greater flexibility in managing your assets.

Event Callbacks via Webhooks

Do you prefer service providers which support HTTP callbacks? So do we, and so we built a world-class webhook delivery system. Kraken.io supports simple event-notifications via HTTP POST whenever something happens, such as completion of an optimization. Use Kraken.io webhooks to notify your app of when a process has completed, rather than keeping numerous connections open simultaneously.
