Proxy image server with nginx [updated]

The original article is here: Proxy image server with nginx

Updates:
– Referer limits
– Cache on the local storage
– Resize image ‘on the fly’
– Image quality settings (for reducing the size)
– Passing the request to HTTPS enabled servers with SNI

Arguments that can be passed to URL:
– w (weight in pixels)
– h (height in pixels)
– q (quality percentage)

Examples:

https://yourdomainname.tld/http(s)://remotedomain.tld/imagepath/imagename.ext
https://yourdomainname.tld/http(s)://remotedomain.tld/imagepath/imagename.ext?w=300
https://yourdomainname.tld/http(s)://remotedomain.tld/imagepath/imagename.ext?w=300&h=300
https://yourdomainname.tld/http(s)://remotedomain.tld/imagepath/imagename.ext?w=300&q=80

Dependency: ngx_http_image_filter_module nginx module. You can read more about configuration here.

        proxy_pass $r;
	expires 10y;
   }
 }

For cache (static zone from above configuration) insert the line in http section. Example:

http {
..................
proxy_cache_path /dev/shm/proxy_cache levels=1:2 keys_zone=static:2048m max_size=40966m inactive=24h use_temp_path=off;
....
}
