Cloudinary for Craft CMS

This plugin integrates Cloudinary with Craft CMS. Assets can be uploaded from Craft's control panel and then transformed and delivered by Cloudinary, even if stored in a different filesystem. The plugin is compatible with your existing Craft template code and named image transforms.


This plugin requires Craft CMS 5.0.0 or later, and PHP 8.2.0 or later.


You can install this plugin from the Plugin Store or with Composer.

From the Plugin Store

Go to the Plugin Store in your project’s Control Panel and search for “Cloudinary”. Then press “Install”.

With Composer

Open your terminal and run the following commands:

# go to the project directory
cd /path/to/my-project.test

# tell Composer to load the plugin
composer require thomasvantuycom/craft-cloudinary

# tell Craft to install the plugin
./craft plugin/install cloudinary


The plugin adds a Cloudinary filesystem type to Craft. It can be used solely as a transform filesystem or as a storage filesystem as well.

To create a new Cloudinary filesystem to use with your volumes, visit SettingsFilesystems, and press New filesystem. Select “Cloudinary” for the Filesystem Type setting and configure as needed.

To start using the filesystem, visit SettingsAssetsVolumes. Here you can create a new volume using the Cloudinary filesystem for both storage and transforms, or add the Cloudinary filesystem to any existing volumes for transforms only. In the latter case, any assets with public URLs from any local or remote filesystem are transformed by Cloudinary using the fetch feature. This may not work in local development setups.

Image Transformations

The plugin supports all of Craft's native transform options. These can be found under SettingsAssetsImage Transforms.

In addition, you can incorporate any of Cloudinary's transformation options in the transforms you define in your templates, like so:

{% set thumb = {
  width: 100,
  height: 100,
  quality: 75,
  opacity: 33,
  border: '5px_solid_rgb:999',
} %}

<img src="{{ asset.getUrl(thumb) }}">

Transformation options should be in camelCase, meaning aspect_ratio becomes aspectRatio, or fetch_format becomes fetchFornat.

Installation Instructions

To install this plugin, copy the command above to your terminal.
