How to Streamline Photo Printing Workflows

Step
1
Create custom UI

Build a UI that best matches your needs, whether it is photo editing, postcard or photo book creation, you can easily adapt our SDK to your specific use case and match your brand perfectly.

Step
2
Create easily customizable templates

Inspire your users with a gallery of templates they can quickly edit and personalize. Define how users can interact which each element and make the editing process as easy or advanced as needed.

Step
3
Enable in-app photo editing

Allow users to quickly and easily crop, adjust, and apply filters to their photos directly in the editor, without the need of using 3rd party tools.

Step
4
Connect variable API

Enable mass personalization with just few clicks. Tag an element as a variable, connect template to a data source and generate countless variation within seconds.

Step
5
Automate creation process with programmatic layouting

Programmatically arrange images on the page to save your users unnecessary work. For instance, sort images by date for a ‘year in review’ photo book and then simply load them into a template to create a print-ready design.

Step
6
Implement automated print validation process

Predefine bleed margins, spot colors, and page clippings and set automatic alerts in case of any errors, such as design extending beyond bleed margins.

You can also implement content moderation to safeguard designs against harmful content or trademark infringements.

Step
7
Provide seamless user experience across all platforms

Build a perfect UI for web, iOS, Android, and server, eliminating common errors plaguing web-to-print applications. Benefits include uniform and consistent features across all platforms, such as text rendering.

FAQs

Can we integrate our own assets (Sticker, Frames, Overlays)?

Yes, absolutely! Please refer to our documentation for more information on that topic.

Can I decide on which features to implement?

Yes, you have full control over which features you decide to use. You can configure the toolbar on mobile and on web you can interface with the API directly to build the exact feature you need.

Which platforms/ frameworks are supported?

Our IMG.LY SDK is suitable for web and mobile (Android & iOS). Supported frameworks are React-Native, Flutter, Ionic, and Cordova for mobile and React, Angular, Svelte and Vue.js for web. For more information, please visit our Guides.

Can I enable/ disable a function by default?

Yes, you have full control over the Editor’s UI and functionality. You can also take full control over the editing process with smart templates, lockable designs and placeholders.

Do you offer integration support?

Yes, apart from accessing our complete CreativeEngine documentation you can also contact our support team. We offer different levels of support based on your license type.
To explore your use case and potential solutions with us simply get in touch.

Which frameworks do you support for building custom UIs?

You can use any Javascript framework to implement a custom UI on top of our headless CreativeEngine API. You can find dedicated getting started guides for React, Vue, Angular and Svelte in our documentation.

Which server-side technologies do you support?

You can run the CreativeEngine in a Node.js environment and deploy it on any platform with Node.js support. See this guide on how to deploy on AWS for reference.

Can I try your Editors to see how it works?

Yes, we offer a free trial for all our products. You can get your free trial right now.

Can my users edit their photos using IMG.LY SDKs when they are offline?

As the editor works client-side, a permanent internet connection isn't necessary for the editor to run properly. Once the device reconnects, available updates can be installed and the export tracking will be communicated. However, if you require the SDK to work in a purely offline environment please contact our sales team to request an offline license.
