    Hi Jotform,

    I'm looking at creating a competition in Jotform where users can upload images along with submitting their details.

    We would like to display all the contribution in some kind of Gallery on the Jotform submission/competition page. Would that be possible to do with Filepicker? If so, how do we extract the image url:s in order to create a photo gallery to be used in Jotform?

    Or do you know a better way to do this?

    Kind Regards,

    David,

    Custom scripts do not work when inserted in a form using the FreeText (HTML) tool. Sorry but we do not allow that.

    What you can do is get your form's source codes, integrate your custom script (filepicker), save it on a page, then have it hosted on your server.

    However, we cannot guarantee that a custom script will work seamlessly with our system. We already have our own upload tool - may I ask what exactly the effect is that you want to achieve for your form?

    If you want to display form submissions on a webpage (or even inside the form), perhaps you may want to look at this example:

    Here's how it was done:

    Hi!
    David and I are working on this together.
    Great that we can show the submissions but is it possible to show submitted images directly in the form (inside the report grid) as an image gallery?

    Indeed, that is possible. Uploaded images are displayed as links with preview upon mouse-over on an HTML table report, such as in this sample report:

    http://www.jotform.com/table/21635159102042

    However, the report function does not have an option to display the images as is.
