    Can you make screen capture tool under "Insert picture" in this "Contact JotForm Support"? It will help better solve problems. Uploading to another server is long way and take lot af times.

    I have forwarded your request to our developers for consideration. 

    For meantime, I would suggest to use Screencast Jing or Screenr for capturing screenshot then use the Upload Image(Enter URL / Upload Image) under Power Tools to insert image. Below is an example of Screencast Jing that lets me capture the image screen.

    Thank you for using Jotform Support Forum.

    You are wrong :(

    Instaled Jing - they not give link to image but only link to html that is not compatible with your input form

    there is link from Jing - http://screencast.com/t/x0CByUBxG5M

    There is result from Jing - image is not inserted in this "Contact JotForm Support"  

     

     

    I talk about this form 

    I also was tested Jing in my own forms (as you show in your screenshot) - they also not work. Url link must be direct to image.

     

     

     

     

     

    Why not make capture screen option in thease forms? It would be much easier

    Something like Snipping tool in Windows

    Hi,

    Jing would be the best. You can Right Click on the Screencast short URL to get the image "Direct URL". Form this image link: http://screencast.com/t/x0CByUBxG5M , here's the direct image URL: http://content.screencast.com/users/sasa999/folders/Jing/media/d8877f8d-f1e6-4e4f-886e-6fce3d56afb8/2013-03-17_2138.png

    Using the "Inset Image" tool, insert this direct URL. That will help you see the image.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I'm sorry. Let me clarify that one. You will have to access the Short URL on your web address bar, then "Right Click" on the image then "Copy Image URL". Visual Guide:

     

    Thanks
