Table of Content

In this post, I will cover how to do file upload using Postman for both image and video. Postman makes it really easy to do file uploads with the help of form-data. Let’s take a look at that –

For this post, I will be using Imgur API (you are free to use any API that supports file upload). So here are the following things we need to successfully upload the file using Postman –

  • API:
  • HTTP Method: POST
  • Authentication: depending on the API
  • Body: form-data

Check out the video below to learn how to upload file using Postman:

  • As part of form-data, you will need to provide the necessary key-value
  • For key, change it from text to file and you will see ‘Select Files’ as a value
