Frequently Asked Questions


What format should I use for the image contents?
Plain binary. Read the image file bytes and add them to your multipart/form-data stream "as they are." Do not encode them. Do not transform them.
What are the limits on how much my app can upload?
The API supports one image per request, and up to 25 megabytes per image.
