Successful startups usually begin with an idea that helps solving a specific problem which has not yet been solved efficiently. It’s important to be focused, otherwise you will end up doing everything and nothing really well. It was true for Uploadcare too. We were focused on a very specific task: image uploads to the CDN and simple crop/resize/transform operations on the uploaded images.
However, no one will tell you what is really expected from your startup better than your clients. Today image uploads is just a segment of our business. Our users found other efficient ways to use Uploadcare, we could not even think about at the beginning.
I would like to highlight two of such success stories: Unidesk and PandaDoc.
As Uploadcare becomes popular, users starting to ask repeated questions about integration and usage. Yet some of the topics are not yet covered in the documentation. Also, reading documentation takes time, and our customers are primarily fast-growing start ups where every minute counts.
So, we decided to be more active on StackOverflow, and create an open knowledge base for our service:
You can use tag [uploadcare] to ask questions and search for answers. We encourage anyone who had experience of customizing the widget or any part of the system:
Please, share your solution with others!
It’s time to start building community. Let’s make our first steps on StackOverflow!
Uploadcare allows users to easily upload files from a growing number of social networks and cloud services. Which raises the obvious question — is it safe? And can others read or even modify user files that are not uploaded to Uploadcare but stored in cloud services? To answer all of these questions, we’d like to explain how Uploadcare works with third-party services.
We have an offer for you: You have a great chance to get 3 months of unlimited usage of Uploadcare (any plan, no limits). You’ll get a great media storage and CDN, so your blog will become up to 5x faster.
What you need to do for that? Make a review of Uploadcare and publish it to your blog. So simple!

New-era services like Uploadcare allow users to integrate all cloud resources with applications and websites. Although in-built widgets make a great service making it easy to choose and add deliver files on the web, some nice customization will never be redundant.
Here an example of widget customization will be shown. Start with Uploadcare Quick Start page to install the basic version of the uploader.
However, in advanced cases you may want to use your own design or logic. In this case, you want to use Uploadcare JS API to customize the behaviour of our widget.
