Unsplash, the leading provider of free high-definition stock photography, had long used an in-house image processing solution. But as the site grew to over 40,000 master images, with thousands added each week, they were spending all their time maintaining it. Unsplash switched to imgix for all its image processing needs, and saved thousands of hours of developer time, while giving its team powerful tools that enabled them to add new features like circular image cropping.
