On the fly but cached so subsequent requests are fast. There could be some slightly delay for first user, but same can be compensated in image download as size would be small, it also depends volume of images being used on your web page. refer this execellent blog post

Yes, you need to map the original image path to have /<path to CID Service>/Path/To/Image.png/transformation/instructions, or something like /cid/mylogo.png/100x100 Yes, since you can request a binary image from the OData WebService. Not sure how the URL would look like, but it is indeed possible. The images can be anywhere, there are some rules to ...

The CID Service obtains the original images from the Web Application; for that purpose, the Web Application passes a reference to itself in the CID request URLs. By default, it passes the authority used in the original request (i.e. the request for the Page which contains CID image URLs), but this strategy won't work if the original request is on localhost, ...

It looks like you are using an IBM JVM (at com.ibm.jsse2.k.a(k.java:24)). This JVM has some specific setting that allows you to enable or disable use of TLS V1.2. This is explained here https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSYKE2_8.0.0/com.ibm.java.security.component.80.doc/security-component/jsse2Docs/matchsslcontext_tls.html#matchsslcontext_tls ...

The installation documentation [Login required] seems to indicate that you need to first set up a normal Tridion CD Web application and install the transformation handler/servlet in that, which would imply that yes - you do need a CD license. However, I have a feeling that there are not really any dependencies on Content Delivery, so you could try to give ...

Contextual Image Delivery is part of SDL Mobile. But you don't have to use CID with DXA; without CID the DXA logic still provides server-side responsive images.

I'm not sure this is possible in the current implementation. The scale operation is intended to scale an image down to the given dimensions, with cropping if the source image will not scale proportionally to the target size - so in effect it should not change the change the original format's aspect ratio of the source image. It also never scales up a source ...

This is weird and we don't see this effect in our DXA Load Test (which we run nightly); we get total response times (Page + embedded resources like images) of approx. 50 ms, so not more than a few ms per image. I do notice that you have the ADF Module enabled and ADF is known to cause significant performance overhead. If you don't use ADF (i.e. you have a ...

As noted in KB article and confirmed by R&D, the WebP image format is not currently supported for the CID module. https://gateway.sdl.com/apex/communityknowledge?articleName=000013016

I think the base path you are using is incorrect, it should i think be 'http://host:8088/cid'
