    Hi joeicon

    To view an image uploaded by a user in an emailed notification, please type {IMG:uploadA:455} in "Compose Email" section of the notification, in the position where you want it to appear. (455 refers to the width in pixels and may be changed to suit your tastes.)

    Hi Joe,

    Please disregard my previous post. I must have missed this feature. Refer to abajan's post for a solution. Thanks.

    Sorry about that, imegre (and joeicon and Neil).

    I just remembered that that tag will only work if the original tag for the upload field is {uploadA}. So, here's what to do: In the "Compose Email" section of the notification, look for the tag next to the upload field. Let's say it's {sendUs}. The tag to get an uploaded image to appear 300 pixels wide in the email would be {IMG:sendUs:300}. Similarly, if the tag for the upload field is {uploadPix}, then to get an image 550 pixels wide in the email you would use {IMG:uploadPix:550}.

    There's a thread in this forum that explains the "image" tag in detail. I'm searching for it and will post the link here when I find it.

    UPDATE: Here is a thread where one of our developers (Serkan) explains how to use the IMG prefix but I don't think that's the thread I'm looking for.

    The search continues!

    UPDATE: Here's another thread on the topic.
