Note: This feature requires a paid plan.

Filestack offers a way to preview files in the browser combining our processing engine with a custom solution built on Mozilla’s PDF.js.

Supported file types:

  • PDF files (PDF)
  • Powerpoint files (PPT, PPTX)
  • Excel files (XLS, XLSX)
  • Word files (DOC, DOCX)
  • ODF word processing documents (ODT)
  • ODF presentation documents (ODP)
  • Image files (gif, tiff, jpg, jpeg, png)
  • HTML files
  • Plain text files
  • Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop files (AI, PSD)

Any file that is a PDF or supports being converted into a PDF can be previewed by using the preview processing task in the file URL:

https://cdn.filestackcontent.com /preview/ HANDLE

This URL can be embedded in your page as a HTML iframe element, and our JavaScript client provides a convenient preview method to generate and embed these URLs.

For example:

<iframe style="width:100%;height:600px;"
        src="https://cdn.filestackcontent.com/preview/SGe380ViQ7W8efiX6sdG">
</iframe>

Document Slider

This is a premium feature. Please contact our Support Team.

Filestack also offers a way to preview files in the browser in a slide view. Any file that is a PDF or supports being converted into a PDF can be previewed by using our slide Processing API task:

https://cdn.filestackcontent.com /slide/ HANDLE

You can pass in a solitary Filestack handle or an array of handles to be merged into one PDF document. This URL can be also embedded in your page as an HTML iframe element.

Note: This only works with Filestack handles.
