Leaner, meaner images with App Cloud image transcoding

Image transcoding example

App Cloud provides a ridiculously simple way to resize and cache images on the fly. I reduced one of my blog images from 125KB at 425px wide to 8KB at 200px wide, a 94% reduction!

Here's the image before ...

... and after:

http://transcode.appcloud.brightcove.com/?image=http://coffee.brightcove.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/female.jpg&width=200

You can also specify height, max_dimensionformat (jpg, png, or gif), and other parameters. Try it for yourself!
