Adding to this, while the images are compressed to speed up the display to users, the original image’s size will still count toward your 10GB. If you have a lot of photos being uploaded, it can still chew through your space.
Ive seen the Cloudinary workaround. Based on their plans its free for up to 25GB, but jumps to $49-$89/month for more space, quite pricey.
Does anybody know if its easier to implement auto uploading to Cloudinary with the new Plugins?
Another workaround I believe is for users to add an image link, which appears to not consume any storage as the image is being hosted somewhere else. Of course, if the image isnt somewhere else already then this wouldn’t be ideal.
Easiest way is you set up an Integromat/Zapier scenario to upload every new image in your app to Cloudinary, then replace the Glide link with Cloudinary, it will help “deleting” the Glide storage I think.
