    Asked on January 09, 2014 at 04:11 AM


    I am wondering if it's possible to create a form with picture upload.

    When I receive the mail, I'd like to get a pdf with the uploaded pictures integrated. Is it possible?

    Currently I just receive a text mail with a download link for the pictures.


    Thanks a lot.

    Yes it is possible here's the steps that you need to take to make this form.

    1. Use the "File Upload" or "Multi Upload" field

    2. Setup your "Email Alerts" to send your notification attached with a pdf link that has an image.


    This is a sample pdf file that has an image attached to it.


    If you need further help don't hesitate to ask.

    Ok thanks.

    So I guess there is one main problem with all these: The preview in "email alert" looks quite different than the final pdf I receive when i click the link in the email.

    I wonder if there is the possibility to edit the pdf, so i can receive the pdf in a way i like.

    Here I send you some examples.

    See the preview, there is no text at the bottom (it ends with pictures.

    and 2nd image is the pdf, there is text after the pictures.






    You send me this, but i don't know where i can find it.

    cant find it


    I created the email in a way, that NO text comes with the image. I want the form parameter above, and below just images, i tried it like this:

    editing without description for the image

    but the pdf is created like this. you can see that there is the description for the image. it's the introduction of the form, but I don't need it in the pdf. even not the grey color on the left.

    wrong displayed



    I really hope that you can help me

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Unfortunately there is no way to customize/edit the layout of the PDF file. PDF submission is auto-generated on the server side, there's no way to customize it as of the moment. So, even if you edit the email alert the pdf will show its predefined layout.

    The image my brother posted is the submission page of the form. Here is how to get in the Submissions page.

    If you do not need the gray background in the pdf file, you can remove it from the PDF, however, that would require you no longer use the PDF Link in email alerts, but to manually download the pdf file from the submission page of the form and use chrome browser. So, it is a workaround suggested by one of our colleagues here: https://www.jotform.com/answers/278139-Can-I-customize-PDF-Export-Layout

    I hope this helps. Please iform us if you need further assistance.
