Comparison with similar libraries

It is very difficult to write this page objectively, but on the other hand I understand that it is very important for developers.

We will do our best to avoid bias and provide fair and accurate information, but if you find something wrong or inaccurate, please let us know by submitting an Issue!


It is probably the most famous of Next.js' image optimization libraries. Compared to our library, it has the following characteristics

  • Optimize images using webpack's loader feature.
  • No need to use next/image

Let me list some of the disadvantages.

  • Update stopped on August 9, 2020.
  • Bundle size is bloated when long strings such as srcSet are needed to bundle images with webpack.

Because of the above features, we would like to compare our library with this one and recommend our library to the following users.

  • I want to use next/image to optimize images.
  • I'm using responsive-loader, but I'm concerned about the bundle size of images.


Since this library is very similar to ours, it would be very good for you to try this one as well.

A brief comparison with our library reveals the following characteristics for your reference.

  • Import and use your own components.
  • Specify a directory, such as public/images, and the images in it will be processed.

Let me list some of the disadvantages.

  • Settings are somewhat complicated and cumbersome.
  • All options for next/image are not available.

Because of the above characteristics, the library is recommended for users other than those listed below.

  • Want to use it as simply as possible.
  • When multiple formats of images are required to be supported by Picture component.

Please let me know if there are others!

If you know of any other similar libraries, please let us know here!
I'll cry and be happy lol.😂
