Media upload

You can upload any file type, from almost any source, using a variety of upload options:

Image and video upload API

If you want to implement your own upload functionality, Cloudinary provides a secure and comprehensive API for easily uploading images and uploading videos from server-side code, directly from the browser or from a mobile application. While you can use the API directly within your custom code, it is recommended to use Cloudinary's SDKs that wrap the API and simplify the implementation.

Upload widget

Cloudinary offers the upload widget: a complete, interactive user interface that enables your employees or end-users to upload files from a variety of sources to your website or application. The widget, requiring just a couple lines of code to integrate, eliminates the need to develop in-house interactive media upload capabilities.

Cloudinary console

The Media Library page within the Cloudinary console provides a variety of ways to upload media to your Cloudinary account from a variety of sources. This option is obviously limited to people with access to your Cloudinary account.
