Get to know FileStack

If you want to add Filestack's file uploader to your website, you'll be able to do so in minutes. When you first create your account, Filestack will show you embed code to put into your site's header. Reload your site, and you'll have a Filestack-powered file picker on your site. You can then customize the picker to work with your site, with Filestack overriding your standard image upload button to let people pick files from their favorite storage service.

Once you have a Filestack upload button, whenever someone wants to add a file to your site, they can select it from Dropbox, Facebook, Evernote, Google Drive, Gmail, and a number of other services. They could also take a picture or video with their device's camera right from Filestack and upload it to your site—or they can pick a file from their computer as normal.

Then, you can use Filestack transformations to tweak the files your users have uploaded—or to automatically customize the files you use on your site. Filestack can convert videos to the format and size you want, adding watermarks and optimizing their framerates and audio bitrates to the settings you want. It can do the same with audio files, trimming them or storing them in the format you want. It can convert documents to and from PDF, Word, PowerPoint, HTML, and image formats, among others. And, it can do a wide range of transformations to images, resizing or cropping them and adding filters or borders. That's a great way to store files in the format your app needs—or, with Filestack integrations, you can automatically convert any files you want without needing your own custom app.

Filestack can then help you store and server those files on your website. You can store your uploaded and transformed files directly in Filestack, or have Filestack save them to Amazon S3, Rackspace, Google Cloud Storage, Dropbox, Box, or Microsoft Azure. You can also make use of Filestack's global CDN network to quickly serve your files to your website visitors and reduce the traffic on your own servers.

Whether you just need a simpler way for people to upload files, or are looking for a tool to transform images and convert files, Filestack is the file upload and conversion API you need. It can work transparently with your existing tools and workflows, so you can focus on building great products and content and not worry about managing files.
