API call

Request method

PhotoUploads API  calls can be done using the POST or GET request methods but since GET request are limited by the maximum allowed length of an URL you should prefer the POST request method.

Example call

GET http://photouploads.com/api/1/upload/?key=12345&source=http://somewebsite/someimage.jpg&format=json

Note: Always use POST when uploading local files. Url encoding may alter the base64 source due to encoded characters or just by URL request length limit due to GET request.
