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 its community adding thousands 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.

The team decided to standardize image processing on imgix, eliminating image handling work for its editorial team and speeding up its site. After implementing imgix, its bounce rate decreased by as much as 50 percent on most pages.
