Every plan has a specific number of master images included. When the billing period starts, the master images counter is at zero.
Master images usage is only increased when the first transformation for a master image is requested inside the billing period. Additional transformations do not count.
Let's say you have 2,000 unique images in your application or service. Master images usage can be at most 2,000 every billing period.
For paid plans we will continue to render images beyond the limit as it is a soft limit (we know unexpected spikes happen). For free plans we will not render images when you are over the limit.
We will send you an email when you are close to the maximum image limit for your plan. If you consistently exceed the master image limit we will ask you to upgrade to a bigger plan.
You don't need to worry, we will never charge you for additional images beyond the limit of your plan.
