Service Description:
The effects previews service applies an effect to a given input image and returns a preview (i.e., thumbnail) of the effect.

Limitations: Can apply up to 10 effects to an image in one call. To minimize the networking and processing loads, use the same input image size as the desired preview size. Supported source image formats are JPG, PNG, TIFF and WEBP.


  • Maximum height or width of preview image is 240px


  • You can set the size of the preview image
  • There are 24 different effects to choose from

Source Image:
If you want to preview more than 10 effects, we recommend you first upload the source image using the Upload method and then use the reference image ID. Otherwise, you can source the image by providing a file or a URL to an online image.
