    Asked on June 04, 2021 at 02:48 PM

    I need to add a widget that is similar to "take a photo" but allows for users of the form to upload a picture from their camera roll AND me be able to add this uploaded picture to my pdf.

    I am aware of the "file upload" widget and the "take photo" widget, but for my form application I need to be able to print the completed form with the pictures added imbedded into my original pdf.

    Currently the issues are as follows;

    Take a photo - works great but cannot allow for camera roll pictures to be added

    File upload - does exactly what I need but does not integrate the pictures into my pdf

    Since none of them works according to your needs, I'll escalate the file upload field to be integrated into the original PDF so hopefully, our team would consider implementing it.

    To further explain the functionality of the Take a Photo Widget, this widget mainly used the device camera when available. If the widget is unable to use the camera, e.g. permission denied by browser or not available, this widget would automatically turn into an upload field where the user can browse photos and upload them. Here's a demo where I intentionally disabled camera permission on my browser.


    I hope this functionality will work for you.
