The Serverless Image Handler solution enables fast and cost-effective image manipulation in the cloud by combining highly available, trusted AWS Services with the open-source imaging processing suite, Sharp. The solution automatically deploys and configures a serverless architecture optimized for dynamic image manipulation. It uses Amazon CloudFront for global content delivery and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for reliable and durable cloud storage at low costs.

This update includes the ability to crop an image as an ellipse, supports images without file extensions, and adds a cache policy and origin request policy in CloudFront to replace the legacy default policies. It also includes several quality-of-life updates, such as improved error handling for cropping and resizing.
