Your ultimate file uploader

Uploadcare Widget is a part of our ecosystem responsible for uploading user-generated content. It replaces your basic <input type="file"> controls. If you want to play with the widget right away, here is our sandbox, widget configurator.

The widget is a responsive and mobile-ready HTML5 file uploader provided as a typical JavaScript library. It supports things like multi-file uploads and a good number of upload sources like social media and cloud storage. The upload sources are organized in widget tabs, so switching from one upload source to another is intuitive.

There are no restrictions on file types you can upload to your Uploadcare account with the widget. However, you will need to confirm your identity to upload non-image files.

When working with images, you can manually crop those during the preview phase or even apply a combination of eight on-the-fly effects using Effects Tab. The widget is easy to install so that you can get up and running in minutes. Yet it is highly customizable when needed.

Here’s the latest version in action,

You can either install the widget manually or get it as part of our libraries or integrations.
