New features

Generative AI recolor transformation (Beta)

Our new generative recolor transformation, part of our advanced AI suite, allows you to recolor objects in your images using natural language prompts, with no need for expensive software or laborious image updates. Generative recolor streamlines color customization and makes creating color variants more accessible. Whether you're in e-commerce or aiming to improve content accessibility, our new feature simplifies your workflow. As we continue to refine this Beta release, we invite you to explore Generative Recolor (e_gen_recolor) and share your feedback.

Visual Search UI and API (Beta)

Cloudinary introduces Visual Search via Natural Language Search and Similarity Search, now available to try as a Beta release.

Find images based on their visual content, as opposed to their name or metadata, to increase image discoverability. You can now seamlessly and intuitively discover your assets by similarity to a given image, or by a simple text search, for example looking for “white sneakers” or “woman with red hair”.

On success upload parameter

We have enhanced our upload flow's flexibility by introducing a new upload parameter on_success that receives a JavaScript code snippet and executes it after upload and analysis have completed. With this new feature it’s much easier to personalize your upload flow by enriching assets with analysis insights. You can update an asset with analysis information, depending on detection and categorization add-on results. For example, assign a moderation score to asset metadata. Currently, you can update an asset's tags, context and metadata.
