Creating Sources

The first step in working with imgix is to create a Source, which connects imgix to your image storage. There are currently four types of Sources:

  • Amazon S3: Connects to an existing Amazon S3 bucket with its own credentials.
  • Google Cloud Storage: Connects to an existing Google Cloud Storage bucket with its own credentials.
  • Web Folder: Proxies content from a given domain (or a subfolder on the domain).
  • Web Proxy: Can proxy any valid image 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.

Note: When naming your Source subdomain, only a single level is allowed. For example, will be allowed, but will not.
