I'm creating a plugin in Craft CMS and it has a feature where you can apply certain image effects and after you are done, you can save it in the configured Asset volume. I know that ImagerX also does most of this stuff but I think it will return the image after doing the processing but what I want is the final image to be stored in the same volume.

I think there are two ways to do this but I would like to know if there are any another options and if not which of the below two approaches is the best one.

  1. I can create a new Asset by using the Craft::$app->getElements()->saveElement API call but I think this will result in the new image appearing in the Assets dialogue which is not quite ideal.

  2. I have to upload the new image to the respective Asset volume where the original image is living and then manage the manipulations in the plugin. This would mean that I will have to integrate with all the Storage service providers like aws, etc

Appreciate some advice.
