Are credits charged for each request? How can I mitigate the cost?

First things first - thank you for such a lovely service and your help. These tools are taking my personal projs. to higher levels.

Second - I'm wondering about how to mitigate credit usage in a Next.js app.

I have a few images and a video uploaded to the CDN. In the Next app I am using your <CldImage/> and <AdvancedVideo /> tags to render them; however, I can't help but notice how costly these are every time I have a user visit my static site.

I'm thinking it may be a good idea to add a cache layer to my site; however, would you happen to have any other suggestions?

Thanks for the help!
