    Hi Rene

    Thanks for asking. To enable users to upload photos (or other files) add an upload button to the form. Load the form into the form builder and in the Form Tools menu on the left click File Upload. Since your particular upload button is only for photos, it would be a good idea to configure it to only accept files with image extensions like JPG, PNG, TIFF and so on, via the extensions button.

    Remember to save the form after making the changes.

    If you need additional help with this our any other aspect of our product, please let us know. Our team will gladly assist you however we can.

    Welcome to JotForm! :)

    Dear Wayne,
    I've tried your instruction's, I've configure the Upload button for JPG, PNG, TIFF from the Extension Buttonis.
    I tried to upload a photo, I just want to know once a photo is uploaded, I want the phot to be visible on the page, its seem that it remain an attachment.

    Initially I thought that putting a report of the form on the same page as the form (as described by my colleague Neil in this thread) and then having the uploaded photos displayed as thumbnails in the said report would be a viable solution. Unfortunately, upon searching the forum, I subsequently discovered that apparently only links can be displayed in reports. It's true that if a table report is used, the image to which a link points is displayed if the mouse is hovered over the link but that won't be practical for images much larger than thumbnails because a significant portion of larger images will be hidden by the border of the iFrame.

    I'll submit a request for form creators to have the ability to choose if images submitted by users should be displayed as thumbnails or links. Alternatively, if that's not possible, having the images displayed on hover be just thumbnails measuring no wider or taller than about 200 pixels would be better than what presently obtains.

    Dear Wayne,

    Thank for your reply.

    Moreover, when I tried to test "SUBMIT" and check my email it's seems that the data is not as the same the form that I had made, including the ID Number that was hidden which is at the bottom of the page. I want the ID Photo and the Badge No. that I have created to be on the same place where I had design for PRINTING purposes.

    Is it possible that the Form that I have design is the same format that I will receive on my email, because the form that they will Fill-up Online or Printed membership are standard. If the Form that I have design will be the same as what on the Email, then I can just PRINT it as the same as my Printed Form that I have that they are also Filling-up.

    Looking forward to your reply

    Best regards

    We have already added a feature request ticket for this thread. Can you request the report in the same format as email request on another thread? So, we can assign a ticket for that one as well. Thanks!
