What is Uploadcare?
Uploadcare is a cloud-based file handling platform that includes a file uploading API, client-side file uploader, smart file storage, content delivery network, and a powerful image processing engine that allows you to transform and optimize images on-the-fly using URL API. All these parts work together seamlessly to cover every aspect of your file handling.
After you or your users upload a file to your Uploadcare account, it gets saved in our storage and immediately becomes available on Uploadcare CDN, so you can get the file back to your app or website via its unique URL right away. The Upload API or file uploader will provide you with a unique file identifier (UUID) once a file has been uploaded, and you can save the file reference to your DB or CMS. See our quick start guide to learn more about the entire file handling workflow.
