Using AWS’ “Server­less Image Han­dler” to roll your own Image Transform Service

Ama­zon AWS has offered a Server­less Image Han­dler for a while that allows you to spin up an AWS Lamb­da func­tion to cre­ate your own pri­vate lit­tle image trans­form ser­vice that is inex­pen­sive, fast, and is front­ed by the Cloud­Front con­tent deliv­ery net­work (CDN).

Whenever an image is uploaded to the bucket, a Lambda function processes it and creates all other required versions.

Under the hood it uses SharpJS, so you could always use their code to make it run on other Cloud Providers 😉
