How can I deliver and transform existing web images using Cloudinary?

    Hi Cloudinary,

    I'm mainly interested in your service for its on-the-fly resizing through the fetch method, but due to the nature of the app I'm creating, for security reasons, I'd be passing many temporary URLs through Cloudinary. I noticed that for each fetch -- even a fetch with the same image but a different query string -- a new image is stored in my Media Library and counted against my total storage count. I want images added to my library through fetch to expire after a certain period of time. Is this possible?

    Hi Tim,

    Cloudinary currently doesn't support automatic timely purging of fetched resources.

    Until this feature is made available, you can implement timely deletions yourself using Cloudinary's Admin APIs.
