API upload for intranet

Hi guys

I'm trying to use the API to download the files in a specific format and dimensions for use on an intranet site. Looking at the Download API methods I can't work out how to do this. Can you show me a simple demo? I am not a coder.

Thanks
Terry

Re: API upload for intranet

Hi Terry,

Have you considered our 'File Fetch' feature? A specially crafted URL can be used to achieve this saving you the effort of developing your own API based scripts. Here is an example:

http://yoursite.com/file/12926452322/320×200/format=JPG

This will dynamically create a small thumbnail in JPG format, 320 by 200 in size generated from the original whose file reference is 12926452322

You could also specify scale, crop or pad options if required. Please see this link for more details:

Thanks Steve! I'll try that and see how it works. I guess we can avoid getting into API with this, hopefully so
