When you upload media to your Digital Asset Manager, Faithlife automatically creates several optimized formats for sharing. While you can create your own formats from the Digital Asset Manager, for more advanced control, you can control image dimensions, format, and quality on the fly with query parameters.
Query Param Options

|q||Quality (1–100); default: 85|
|m||Reize mode (fit or limit)|
|bg||Replace a specific background color (e.g., white) with transparency|
|fuzz||Color fuzzing percentage for the background removal param|
