Creating Sources

The first step in working with imgix is to create a Source, which connects imgix to your asset storage. Here are the Source Types we support:

  • Amazon S3: Connects to an existing Amazon S3 bucket with its own credentials.
  • Google Cloud Storage (Recommended): Connects to an existing Google Cloud Storage bucket with its own credentials.
  • Microsoft Azure: Connects to an existing Microsoft Azure File Share or Container (Blob) with its own credentials.
  • DigitalOcean: Connects to an existing DigitalOcean Space with its own credentials.
  • Cloudflare R2: Connects to an existing Cloudflare R2 Object storage with its own credentials.
  • Wasabi: Connects to an existing Wasabi bucket with its own credentials.
  • Linode: Connects to an existing Linode bucket with its own credentials.
  • Web Folder: Proxies content from a given domain (or a subfolder on the domain).

Additionally, customers with Premium acccounts (opens in a new tab) can create a Web Proxy Source, which can proxy any valid asset URL.

The requirements for each Source type vary. Sources may also contain additional configuration options such as default parameters, default images, cache-control headers, and cross-origin request information.
