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.

Pros
- 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

Cons
It is great overall, the only thing I dislike the most is the validations API, you have to include an estrange method to return errors and validation simple things you can do in the init section of the library, validations such as file type or file size limit should be easy as the implementation it self, you have to go an manually include those extra methods. Those validations are easy to include, but should

I tied up Uploadcare with Zapier and this seems to be working well.

Pros
I liked the fact that someone else has done the hard work for me.

Cons
The php instructions are minimal - I would have liked a bit more detail about setting up some common scenarios

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.

Pros
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

Cons
It's not the easiest to install in the first place Very developer centric, but your engineers could like it Documentation is good, but hard to find

Uploadcare is a great service to host your images at scale.

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.

Pros
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.

Cons
Along they way there have been some small hiccups with the API and the javascript that drives the upload widget. The team at Uploadcare have, however, always been responsive to our concerns.

Stored files are available on Uploadcare's CDN (content delivery network) that includes a URL-based API that lest you re-size, crop, rotate images, grayscale, flip, sharpen and much more; choose the file quality; change the file format; and more.

Once you are happy with your files you can deliver your files to your chosen recipient in your chosen format.

Responsive mobile layout enables you to use the web widget on your mobile device.
