Why do we believe our Plugin is a game changer?

The Cloudinary for WordPress Plugin ensures improved site performance and user experience by automatically delivering each asset in the most efficient format, quality and resolution for all channels and devices. Unlike other solutions, which offer simplistic integrations to media libraries, Cloudinary enables WordPress users to not just find media assets, but to organize, select, transform and utilize Cloudinary's Digital Asset Management (DAM) smart search capabilities without leaving the WordPress UI -- allowing users to transform assets for optimal delivery and performance faster and more efficiently.

Key features include:

  • Easy, single-click setup and installation with no coding or configurations, and automatic, bi-directional sync with Cloudinary and WordPress media libraries
  • Embedded integration with Cloudinary’s Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution delivering elegant, easy-to-use UI, folder-based browsing, and AI-powered search and tagging
  • Seamless integration with Cloudinary’s video solution for all videos, and additional options like autoplay, repeat, displaying controls, and bit rate limit
  • Full support for the widely used open-source eCommerce platform, WooCommerce
  • Support for both Gutenberg and classic WordPress editors for easy post and page editing and design

Developed in collaboration with XWP, a leading engineering firm and WordPress VIP Gold Agency Partner, you can read their perspectives about the new Plugin in their blog post here.

WordPress users, please check it out and let us know what you think. We’re looking forward to the feedback -- and we can’t wait to see all the new visual stories you’ll tell.
