    How do I get the UploadCare widget to only allow upload images (ID cards size) only from local sources?

    As far as I could see there is not an option to allow only local sources inside of the widget settings. 

    I will raise this to our developers to see if this can be implemented. However, we can not provide you the exact time when and if this will be implemented. If there is any update we will inform you via this thread. 

    For now, I can only suggest you to hide the other options with CSS. To achive that add this CSS code to the Custom CSS field of the File Uploader by Uploadcare:

    .uploadcare--file-sources {

        display: none!important;

    }

    .uploadcare--menu__toggle {

        display: none!important;

    }

    I checked the documentation of the Uploadcare widget and it is already possible to allow only local files. 

    https://uploadcare.com/docs/uploads/widget/upload_sources/ 

    To achieve that add this code inside of the Additional Global settings of the Uploadcare widget:

    UPLOADCARE_TABS = 'file';

    Thanks for being able to provide the answer. I haven't found the UploadCare support documentation to be easy to find or very elaborate.

    Thanks for your help!
