Image Editor


We also have an Image Service you can use to resize images on-the-fly! Please take a look at the documentation.

Storyblok’s Assets Library has an image editor built right into it! No need to disturb your design team for a small cropping job or to spin up Photoshop and leave Storyblok. You can do all your edits directly in our app!
