Uppload is a JavaScript file up­load­ing wid­get I de­signed and de­vel­oped. I ini­tially built the plu­gin in April 2018, and then built the sec­ond ver­sion in late 2019 and re­leased it in early 2020. Uppload v2 has 20+ ways to se­lect files, and 10+ ways to edit im­ages be­fore up­load­ing them.

For ex­am­ple, users can im­port pic­tures from pop­u­lar free im­age repos­i­to­ries like Unsplash and Pexels with­out hav­ing to worry about the li­cense.

What made Uppload v1 great was that it was end-to-end, mean­ing that users could take a pic­ture from their cam­era, crop it to square, and up­load it — all from within the plu­gin. With Uppload v2, there are over 10 new ef­fects apart from crop­ping, like ro­ta­tion, flip­ping, and ad­just­ing fil­ters like bright­ness, con­trast, and sat­u­ra­tion.

Uppload was the #1 Product of the Day on Product Hunt, and is avail­able on GitHub.
