    Is there a widget that loads an image and makes it appear on the same page, or how do I load the images loaded in a form into another form?

    Are you saying you want to show the image that your users are uploading on the form, so they see the image before submitting the form?

    Yes, this is possible by using our Image Upload Preview widget:

    Your users will be able to see their image directly on the form when they are uploading it.

    If you were asking about something else instead, please describe what you may be looking for in more detail, and we'll gladly look for possible ways to achieve it. Thank you.

    Almost. I want the user to load the image through a button and that image appears on the same screen as a classified, so that other users when accessing the same form can see the images that the first user uploaded.

    I'm afraid that is not available through using our system, simply because all files you receive through form submissions are limited in the number of times they can be downloaded. Small files can be downloaded up to 100 times in total, and large files can be downloaded up to 10 times in total. After that, your files are no longer available for download.

    Each time your users would open the form, they would download the images, and your images would become unavailable soon. If that is not a problem, you can simply embed a submissions report into your form, and make sure that your submissions report shows images.

    First, you would generate a report, Table and Grid Listing would be the reports you could use:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/105-How-to-Create-a-Grid-Listing-Report

    Next, you would make sure that your report is set to show images instead of links to the uploaded files:

    You could also disable all the other fields, so that your report will only show images.

    Finally, you would use our Iframe Embed widget on your form, and add the link to your generated report within the Iframe Embed widget.

    This would allow your users to see the uploaded images from other users on your form, but as indicated, this would quickly deplete the download count of the files you are receiving, and you would not be able to access the files later on.

    I hope this helps.
