Serverless Image Handler Now Leverages Sharp and Provides Smart Cropping with Amazon Rekognition

The AWS Solutions team recently updated Serverless Image Handler, a solution that combines highly available, trusted AWS services and the open source image processing suite Sharp to enable fast and cost-effective image manipulation on the AWS Cloud. The solution provides a demo user interface for image manipulation that allows you to interact directly with your image handler API endpoint using image files in your account. It also features an image request option that allows you to crop images using the facial recognition capabilities of Amazon Rekognition.
