    Hi reading through your blog and forum posts about taking photos directly into forms, it seems this can be done by:

    1. filestack file picker integration - older posts, is it still supported? Cheaper alternatives available?

    2. take photo widget - seems resolution is poor?

    3. File upload - how does this open a camera widget that a layman user will understand what they need to do?

    What's the best option that's HiPAA compliant please?

    Thanks in advance!

    Here are the widgets that can use the camera of the device and upload it to the form:

    1. https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/file_uploader_by_uploadcare

    2. https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/take_photo

    1. file stack file picker integration - older posts, is it still supported? Are cheaper alternatives available?

    - This is not available anymore. 

    2. take photo widget - seems resolution is poor?

    - I think it depends on the camera of the device. 

    3. File upload - how does this open a camera widget that a layman user will understand what they need to do?

    - I am assuming that you are already familiar with our Form Builder. Unfortunately, this will not open the camera but the user can upload the images to your form. Here's a guide that you can follow: https://www.jotform.com/help/332-How-to-Create-File-Upload-Forms
