Serve an Image Before Upload Has Completed

Uploading images is slow. You can request an image before upload has completed, or even before upload has began. Your request will block until image upload has completed.

Step 1: Allocate an ID
$ curl \ -XGET \ -H "x-img-api-key: $API_KEY" \
{ "id": "luzogr8ggnyp0kzr", "access": "private" }

Once the ID is allocated, you can request the image. The image request will block until the image is uploaded.

Step 2: Upload the Image
$ curl \ -XPUT \ -H "x-img-api-key: $API_KEY" \ -F file=@example.png \
{ "id": "luzogr8ggnyp0kzr", "url": "", "secureUrl": "", ···
"creationDate": "2016-04-22T14:40:14.311-07:00", "access": "private", "size": 637206, "width": 1933, "height": 1034, "mimeType": "image/png", "fileExtension": "png", "originalFilename": "example.jpg"
