Welcome to Thumbor's documentation!
Thumbor is a smart imaging service. It enables on-demand crop, resizing and flipping of images.
It features a VERY smart detection of important points in the image for better cropping and resizing, using state-of-the-art face and feature detection algorithms (more on that in :doc:`detection_algorithms`).
Using thumbor is very easy (after it is running). All you have to do is access it using an URL for an image, like this:

Release 4.0.0 introduces a breaking change if you are using either the GraphicsMagick or the OpenCV Imaging engines. Please read the :doc:`release_notes` for more information.
