Gem pages is a great product, but not using Shopify's content library seems redundant and an added cost that will only drive the subscription price up.
Please allow people to either A) Make Gem Pages work with Shopify's content library / CDN, or B) Allow people to bring their own CDN like AWS CloudFront or CloudFlare.
Hi John. Thank you for your feedback.
Yes! Actually, we are about to release an option to upload images directly to Shopify Files management, and will backup it through our server storage for restoring ability.
We will keep you updated about this soon.
