About Uploadcare

Uploadcare is file management platform and a CDN for user-generated content. It is a robust file API for uploading, managing, processing, rendering, optimizing and delivering users’ content.

What Uploadcare Does

We provide an infrastructure that includes:
  • Smart Storage powered with AI (object recognition, malicious content detection)
  • File Uploader and Image Editor widgets
  • URL API for image optimization and transformations (document and video conversion)
  • Content Delivery Network


We build a developer-oriented platform with low-level access to the features through the API.


“In-house file infrastructure? No thank you. With Uploadcare, we save 40 hours of per week and decrease the total cost of ownership (TCO) on infrastructure development. More to ask?”

“For us to build the functionality we use, it would probably take a team of 3 or 4 developers several months. Using Uploadcare, we've basically taken a shortcut. We haven't had to build any uploading or image-processing infrastructure ourselves, so we've saved a bunch of dev work. This part of our software is just handled. It's not something we need to worry about.”

“Before using Uploadcare, I just did all the image processing myself with scripts. It was a nightmare. It’s a lot more work, and it’s not interesting work.”
