Image uploading and resizing with a prebuilt S3 setup. Free cloud storage. Starting at ~$0.022/hour.
In less than five minutes, you can improve the performance and functionality of your application. Do you need to allow your users to upload photos to your app? What about forms? Resumes? No problem. Simple File Upload handles all of the tooling surrounding file uploads for you. No cloud storage account needed.
Simple File Upload is specifically designed to work with Heroku’s ephemeral filesystem. How do we do this? We use direct uploads. Files are uploaded directly to the cloud from your user’s browser, without passing through your app.
Adding direct uploads allows you to offload the storage of static files from your app. This is crucial on Heroku, because your app’s dynos have an ephemeral filesystem. This means that all files that aren’t part of your app’s slug are lost whenever a dyno restarts or is replaced (which happens at least once a day).
Provide your users with an exceptional file uploading experience with our responsive upload widget. No CSS needed. Personalize the widget to integrate seamlessly with your existing UI. Change the icon, size, and any of the colors.
Let’s make your application lighter and faster today. Uploaded files are delivered quickly and securely via a global content delivery network (CDN).
Don’t limit your users to single file uploads only! Want to allow your users to upload multiple photos to a real estate website? Or various documents to a job board? We do that. The upload widget accepts up to 50 files at a time.
Are your users uploading unnecessarily large images? These images require costly storage space and slow down your application. It’s frustrating for everyone! If your images will be fixed to a specific size, configure the upload widget to resize images before uploading to the cloud. Start saving time and money now.
It’s important to serve images at the correct size for speed and efficiency. But, what if you don’t know what your image sizes need to be? What if your design requirements change? Upload images at full resolution. Then, use our dynamic image resizing to serve the images perfectly every time.
We know how difficult S3 is to set up and maintain, that’s why we’ve done it for you. All files are stored in redundant high security, high availability data centers. Additionally, we store files across two different service providers. Secure cloud storage is free for all customers.
We allow you to tag uploaded files so you can easily keep your files organized in your dashboard.
We give you complete control over what users can upload to your app. Limit file type, size etc. Keep your dashboard clean and organized with the option to tag files.
Reassure your users that the correct file is en-route to its destination, 100% of the time. With file previews and uploading progress bars, there’s never any confusion.
While we try to make it easy, web applications are complicated.
