AEM Cloud Service - Assets Processing Profile and Post Processing workflow to generate JPEG Assets by Sreekanth Choudry Nalabotu


Create Low res JPEG images from High quality Master assets (eg. psd, tif) uploaded to AEM, so the jpeg images can be browsed using AEM Desktop app and placed in 3rd party apps like Figma.

1) Create a Process Step apps.experienceaem.assets.core.workfows.ConvertRenditionToAssetProcess used in a Post Processing workflow for creating the JPEG asset from rendition added by a Processing Profile. It's worth noting that streaming of binaries in AEM cloud services is not considered a best practice, the rendition.getBinary() call in below code does not stream binary but gets a pointer to the binary in blob store. Also when processing the created asset set runPostProcess to false so the post processing workflow does not run on generated assets...
