    This is really great and useful app. The website is also nicely laid out and works very well. Great job!

    It's a neat idea. Potentially a nice clean tool for working with files. The one thing that I really liked about this was that it lets users upload images to one place and then you can import from wherever they have their files.

    P.S. You should add Flickr as one of your future updates.

    Awesome start, I hope you develop this project further. I am personally interested in various processing features.

      Thanks, I do intend to take it further. What kind of processing features, you said, would be interesting ?

    Having to have an API key (signup) felt like a deal breaker to me.

    The embeddable image picker is a really good idea, and it looks like there is definitely some potential in this product! I couldn't get the processing (e.g. resizing, cropping) to work, but image uploading worked well.

    Cool! It’s really useful..

    I was unable to get the resized image via url params. Though it is a great utility for devs.

    Utility: Easy image conversion is useful, but I have so many tools these days at my disposal it isn't something I'm typically in search of. The widget/API is where you're getting points here.

    Design: Simple Bootstrap, fine, but not eye popping. I can't tell if the image placeholders are intentional or what...

    Innovation: I've seen numerous websites that offer similar or other image upload & modification tools. However, giving you 3-stars because the widget is innovative.

    I was able to upload an image on the main site, but then I couldn't seem to do anything with it. Please let me know if I'm missing something.

    Seems like a very useful product but i'd rather have it as a library than as a service. Wish i didn't have to go through a complicated setup process to try it out.

    This is a great idea, but the execution is a bit off.

    I think this platform is one of the more compete projects that I've seen in NK so far. Awesome job. I really like the user interface, you make it real easy for anyone to get an understanding of how your API works and how to implement it. However, I don't like that it doesn't seem to be solving a major problem considering it would be easier to serve the images in your own server in my opinion. Otherwise, good job.
