        I cannot solve the problem for this image, because it doesn’t exist, I cannot reach: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-y2_gvZppkms/TxHHbS8Z6jI/AAAAAAAABIc/DbFuRlaA8Ks/s72-c/Honda+NSX+concept+copy.jpg

        My browser reports an 404 header, and shows an exclamation mark.

        I fixed some other problems though, that are somewhat related to + s and spaces in url’s. Please check your URL’s through http://redbot.org/ to confirm the resource isn’t 404-ed.

        An example of a working image:
        http://images.weserv.nl/index2.php?url=2.bp.blogspot.com/-bmXaEeWEyB0/TZ6Vf6YpzEI/AAAAAAAABYo/_EOjwot5beg/s1600/color%20block4.jpg
        http://images.weserv.nl/index2.php?url=2.bp.blogspot.com/-bmXaEeWEyB0/TZ6Vf6YpzEI/AAAAAAAABYo/_EOjwot5beg/s1600/color+block4.jpg
        http://images.weserv.nl/index2.php?url=2.bp.blogspot.com/-bmXaEeWEyB0/TZ6Vf6YpzEI/AAAAAAAABYo/_EOjwot5beg/s1600/color%2Bblock4.jpg

        You’ll see that *.bp.blogspot.com accepts an wide range of url’s. I hosted ‘color block4.jpg’ myself, resulting in:
        http://images.weserv.nl/?url=images.weserv.nl/color%20block4.jpg
        http://images.weserv.nl/?url=images.weserv.nl/color+block4.jpg

        Note that the + is transformed to a space, and the following url will not work:
        http://images.weserv.nl/?url=images.weserv.nl/color%2Bblock4.jpg

        because I didn’t storage ‘color+block4.jpg’ but ‘color block4.jpg’.

        Long story short: The proxy shouldn’t have any problems related to + and/or spaces anymore, but you should check the URL you’re using first.

            • Add Pricing info

              Your service matches exactly what I'm looking for, but I'm unclear if it's a business I can rely on, or a project that's for fun. If the former, what is the pricing/terms? If the latter, is the code open source by chance?

                The image proxy is free for use to anyone, and we offer it as-is, it’s just basic image resizing, available to anyone, easy to use. We try to keep everyone as happy as we can.

                We, as a company, make websites, web applications and mobile applications, so the image proxy is used by us and our customers a lot. By making it freely available, we gain some experience with different user cases, and our customers appreciate it too! It’s a service towards our customers, and relations of our customers. We partner with other companies in our industry, and they see the image proxy as a timesaving solution in their projects too. It’s saving us traffic (through compression), and offloading our main servers, because customers don’t have to use poor self-written scripts for image resizing, instead, they can direct it to images.weserv.nl, which is dedicated to the task. Operating costs of…

                    • Return image base64 encoded

                      Hello,
                      I like your service very much!

                      Could you please add a parameter for encoding?

                      Example: &encoding=base64 returns the base64_encode($image) string.

                      Thats very useful for embedding images directly. And the string is cached via Cloudflare. So it's fast and efficient.

                      Thanks!

                      • Are you saving / caching images forever?

                        You are caching the images. But how long? When does the server refresh images?

                        Example: Image chached, original image deleted. Does the server output the image after some time?

                        Thanks!

                          The image will be deleted eventually, but there are a lot of different caches. I expect it to be deleted between 14 and 60 days, depending on the amount of requests an image gets.

                          Images that are getting almost none requests will be deleted sooner.

                          The server will only initiate a refresh when all caches have expired, and only when the image is still being requested by end users.

                              Wrote an implementation for your idea, would you please test this option for me?

                              I added the parameter “&trim”, with the option of setting the sensitivity. Default this sensitivity is 10.

                              The sensitivity defines how black/white/etc the borders must be. For example: your image has a colored border ranging from #000000 (pitch black) to #0F0000.

                              Example with default sensitivity:
                              http://images.weserv.nl/?url=i.ytimg.com/vi/9bZkp7q19f0/hqdefault.jpg&trim

                              Example with sensitivity of 20:
                              http://images.weserv.nl/?url=i.ytimg.com/vi/9bZkp7q19f0/hqdefault.jpg&trim=20

                              Example with a lot of other options, and a sensitivity of 20:
                              http://images.weserv.nl/?url=i.ytimg.com/vi/9bZkp7q19f0/hqdefault.jpg&trim=20&h=200&w=200&t=square

                              Any comments are welcome!

                              • Add a "Scale to Fill" resize feature

                                The service is fantastic and it may be the case that no one thus far is in need of this, but one thing we do at http://www.wishpot.com/ is crop images in such a way that they fill a rectangle, even if that means we have to cut out part of the image (via overflow:hidden in css).

                                Unlike a normal resize, where you'd set a maximum height and width, what this code does is pick the smallest dimension and make that the height or width of the box. Then, we'll overflow the larger dimension.

                                For example, to fit an image into…

                                  Please see the &t=square option, if you feed it an image which is 300h, 200w, and request it like:

                                  http://images.weserv.nl/?url=http://host/dir/image-300h-200w.jpg&t=square&h=100&w=50

                                  It will return the image which is 100×50 centered, and cropped of the sides.

                                  No need to do such things yourself in CSS.

                                  If you want to center it in CSS yourself, use &t=fit (or don’t use any &t=), and only give the height you want.

                                  Example: http://images.weserv.nl/?url=http://host/dir/image-300h-200w.jpg&h=100

                                  This should give you an image of 100×66, which you can center yourself in CSS.

                                  Let me know if there’s still any need for an t=fill option.

                                  At the moment the JPEG Compression level seems quite high, would be great to have a way to control it.

                                        • Disallow robots

                                          Please disallow robots to index images. You could also create a subdirectory, for example http://images.weserv.nl/norobots/?url=...

                                          It's very important because webhosters could not change this value in their own robots.txt for external images.
