    I am not sure how you meant it. But you can actually have a TextArea field with an image background on it. You can write on top of the image background.

    Here is an example form https://form.jotform.com/63547381514963

    how it works...

    Hope this help. Let us know how we can be of further assistance.

    Please try this, add the Draw on Image widget to your form. It will let you upload an image first then you can draw on it and then submit form.

    Here's a demo form: https://form.jotform.com/63550399044964

    Give it a try and let us know if that's what you wanted. Thank you.
