How imgix Calculates
Usage & Pricing
Only the master images you use count toward the $3/1000 master image charge. If it’s in your catalog but never requested, there’s no cost.
We don't charge to create different versions from your master images, so you can be as creative with the service as you desire.
Optimized Content Delivery
We serve your images fast worldwide, with no additional charges for any region. Just a flat 8¢/GB of bandwidth around the globe.
What is a Master Image?
A Master Image is any image requested by imgix from your connected source (e.g. an Amazon S3 bucket). If you have previously pre-generated different versions of the same image, such as resizes and crops, you will only need to request the Master—we generate (unlimited) new rendered versions from the Master Image on the fly. We recommend the Master Image be the highest-resolution version of each of your images.
How and when will I be billed?
We bill on the first of each month for the previous month’s total. Master image and bandwidth counts also reset then.
- Pay-As-You-Go: We charge the credit card on file and email a receipt
- Volume Pricing: We email an invoice to the billing contact on the account
How are multiple-image operations like blends and watermarks charged?
Images that are used as overlays, watermarks, etc. will count as master images even if they are not addressed or served directly. For example, if you have 5 images of cars and 1 image of a logo, and you use the logo as a watermark on each of the car photos, you would be billed for 6 master images. The logo image may never be delivered directly, but still counts as an master image since it is fetched to render the logo watermark.
What is the monthly minimum for usage?
We have a $10 minimum to maintain your imgix account. If you generate less than $10 in master image requests and bandwidth charges (combined) in a given month, your account will be billed the minimum amount of $10.
