DocShots is a free service for website and blog owners. Simply add your custom DocShots code just one time into the background of your site and all your posted documents (.doc, .pdf, .ppt, .xls) will be converted to DocShots links.

DocShots provides publishers with a new option for presenting documents online while providing readers a better way to preview and download these documents. This free, turnkey service converts any posted document on your website or blog into a hover-able link that enables instant online document preview.

Sign-in or Create an account on Docstoc, to generate your own custom DocShots code. The code is a few lines of javascript that you cut & paste into the bottom of your site’s HTML pages. All the documents you post on your website or blog will be accessible through your Docstoc profile. This way you can easily follow their usage statistics.

DocShots provide you controls to:
– Modify the default width and height of the document preview
– Set documents to display as public on docstoc or store privately in your own account
– Include or exclude our Related Docs and Other Docs features in the DocShots display

  1. I feel I must alert people to this ongoing “Fraud”. DocShots does NOT deliver and its claims are a total scam. Please beware of DocStoc.

    As a web designer, I have followed meticulously their instructions, in order to activate previews of my documents from my site, via “hover links”. After several exhaustive attempts, nothing. It still didn’t work.

    So, in correspondence with Alon Shwartz, CTO & co-founder of DocStoc, I explained how their video tutorial was incomplete and grossly inefficient. He agreed with me, adding that he would rectify this.

    I waited. I then tried it again. Still, it did not work. Again, I viewed their tutorial. Nothing had changed. Alon Shwartz lied about changing this. I then challenged him to prove to me that this elusive function actually existed. He refused to do so. I have since challenged DocStoc repeatedly to alter their fake tutorial. Again, they refused to do so.

    Recently, I discovered that peoples work was being plagerised from DocStoc. Someone contacted me, claiming that DocStoc were taking published work, and selling it for profit. However, I cannot honestly verify this element.

    Be wary of DocStoc.
