    I am developing an application where I would like the image to be captured when filling out the form, without the option of attaching an image of the device. Is there any way to do this?

    Hi Marketinggonzaga2020,

    Thank you for contacting Support.

     You may use the Take Photo widget to take photos or select an already taken one from the mobile device.

    I would not like the user to be able to select a photo already taken on the device, only new photos. Is there any way to avoid this?

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to disable the option for the user to be able to select the existing file in "Take Photo" widget. This option is actually a fall back option if the camera permission is not allowed in the browser.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.
