I’m a huge fan of the various Cloudflare offerings, and have been impressed time after time with the innovations and solutions offered by CF. This writeup therefore pains me, as I usually don’t have anything negative to say about CF, but after some months in production, and a severe lack of any meaningful reply from the CF Images team addressing any of these concerns (you won’t find a single official response in any of the linked community posts), I find it necessary to inform about some aspects of CF Images that I frankly find both surprising, concerning and disappointing. I will update this list when issues have been addressed.
Update 2022-03-15: The CF Team added a fix for “6. “Direct Creator Upload” is essentially useless” the 15th of February
Update 2022-03-16: The CF Team added a fix for “2. No way to track how many images has been served”, though I’m not certain when. This was brought to my attention by Discord user
k8s (thanks!) on the CF Developers Discord
