Cloudinary enables you to manually edit your image's face coordinates. This can be done by either sending custom
face_coordinates via the API, or setting them via the Media Library.

However, when using
a_ignore along with the
g_face transformation, the result is an incorrectly cropped image:
In order to avoid the face information reset, you can chain the
a_ignore parameter, so it is within a different transformation component, as follows:
