The Serverless Image Handler solution 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 automatically deploys and configures a serverless architecture that is optimized for dynamic image manipulation, and uses Amazon CloudFront for global content delivery and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for reliable and durable cloud storage at a low cost. 

This update includes the option to add a signature to the image URL to improve security around image access. It also includes a number of quality-of-life updates such as providing a fallback image when an error occurs, and improved error handling when processing large images.
