Effective administration of your ever-growing media library requires organizing and managing files, controlling access, and monitoring usage and performance. Cloudinary enables efficient management of your assets using comprehensive APIs and a management console, with dashboards and automated workflows for improved productivity.

Interactive Media Library

Browse your media library using search, tags and categories, and organize resources in folders and subfolders via a web-based management console.

You can manipulate images and videos using simple parameters for height, width, crop, format and quality, as well as apply enhancements, artistic filters and effects.

Build your own management console
Build your own Management Console Using APIs

Take full control of the entire media library using the Cloudinary admin API.

You can easily integrate your application with the admin interface, create and customize workflows, automate tasks and add other advanced functionalities to streamline operations.

Perfromance and usage
Performance and Usage Analytics

Gain important insights into your media assets with in-depth analytics on performance, bandwidth usage and error monitoring.

You can easily create and share detailed reports, highlighting key metrics.

Content moderation workflow
Content Moderation Workflow

Moderate your images manually or automatically to ensure that no restricted or offensive content is displayed to end users.

Role based access control
Role-based Access Control

Provide controlled access to suit the needs of different users - developers, IT, DevOPs, marketing, product and others - based on their roles.

Streamline Operations Using Advanced Controls

Metadata Management

Extract and store information, such as height and width, number of bytes, format, Exif metadata and more.

Tagging and Categorization

Add tags and categories to your content to make the library searchable and easy to browse.

Authentication and Authorization

Control access to original and transformed assets and prevent unauthorized manipulations.

Back up and Revisions

Automatically back up resources to a secure location and maintain a revision history to review and revert to previous versions.

Upload Presets and Mapping

Manage user-generated content and other assets uploaded from any location using default settings or bulk actions.

Cache Invalidation

Easily clear the cache to avoid delivering outdated content and instead provide access to updated versions from the origin.


Add multiple projects or websites under one master account.

Account Status

Track usage details, including storage, bandwidth, requests, number of resources.

Asynchronous Processing

Perform computing-intensive uploads and manipulations in the background.

Easily Integrate with Your Development Framework

Cloudinary’s client-side integration libraries and SDKs simplify the integration with your development platform of choice.
