Image CDN

Using the built-in Astro <Image /> component

Astro's Image component will automatically use Netlify Image CDN to serve optimized images.

import { Image } from 'astro:assets';
import corgi from '../assets/corgi.jpg';
// Later in your markup...
<Image src={corgi} alt="Corgi" /* ... additional props */ />

Original vs. optimized image: can you tell the difference?

In the code below, a regular <img> tag is used in both cases for a framework-agnostic example. Note that aside from Astro's Image or rolling your own <img> tags, you can also use the excellent unpic-img package.

// <== On the left, the original image
<img src="/images/corgi.jpg" alt="Corgi" />

// ==> On the right, explicitly using Netlify Image CDN endpoint for a responsive image
