Can I generate Progressive JPEGs with Cloudinary?

Yes, Cloudinary supports generating progressive JPG files.

You can do that by setting the flags transformation parameter to progressive or fl_progressive for URLs.

Here's a sample standard JPG:

The sample image as a progressive JPG:,fl_progressive/exif_sample.jpg

UPDATE: fl_progressive is now supported for PNGs and single-frame GIFs as well.

    why isn't it progressive by default??
    it HARDLY takes any additional space.

    can't see why would anybody want a non-progressive jpeg.

    Also, to demo the progressive mode, a very "heavy" file should be demoed.
