Add or edit transformations

Transformations let you create renditions dynamically, in different dimensions, without regenerating the public link.

Transformations behave as follows:

  • The system tries to apply a same-type conversion on a file type.

  • If the system cannot do such a conversion, it returns the original file.

To add or edit a transformation:

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage cog icon.

  2. On the Manage page, click Transformations.

  3. On the Transformations page, do one of the following:

    • To add a transformation, click + Transformation.

    • To edit an existing transformation, click the corresponding Edit Transformation button.

  4. In the Transformation dialog, fill out the following fields.
