Uploadcare overview

Uploadcare is an IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service) file uploading solution for developers to add to their websites, blogs and apps. The app uses an open-source HTML5 widget to offer image file uploading to your users. The widget supports drag and drop, multiple file upload, and uploaded image previews. Further to uploading and sending files, you can also crop, resize and transform uploaded images using URL commands.

Using Uploadcare you can upload files from multiple source, including local drive, URLs, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, Facebook, Instagram, Evernote, OneDrive, Flickr and VK. Uploadcare includes a widget, an API, cloud storage and serving via CDN. The URL-based API lets you apply a number of commands to images including re-size, crop, rotate, sharpen, stretch, invert and more. You can also change the file format of files before sending images.

Reduce development time, accelerating feature creation, plus having image processing save tons of backend code or installing image processing libraries. Perfect for large solution and ideal for small project, because the free plan is sensational.- Easy to use - Free plan is way more than enough - Filters and image processing OMG! - Easy to customize, I'm using a custom button and upload views - Made thinking on the developers - No need for weird libraries or uglify your code - Documentation is clean and easy to follow - Large community when needed a little extra not in the docs

Our dev team integrated Uploadcare to RIDERS app (http://riders.co). It helped us to launch a month faster, but it's not the most important part. The most important, is that it just works. Our end-users upload files from Instagram and Facebook, we wouldn't do it by ourselves, but with Uploadcare it's just a bonus, an addition to their uploading, image processing features and CDN. Thumbs up.Reliability, it haven't failed for 3 years and counting Customer support, they answer very fast Nice features like uploading from different sources like Facebook and Instagram

This service allowed us to remove paperclip and some issues we were having getting that to work reliably. It also removed the complexities around resizing and a dynamic way to upload images without us to having to implement them ourselves.The ease of getting the solution integrated with our product, and the ability to serve up images at scale and allow us to resize on the fly have been a great improvement over "roll our own" solutions to hosting images for our customers.

I don't have to think, how to design upload feature. I just have to implement it. It saves a massive amount of focus and time.
