    Do uploaded images show up as thumbnails with the full size image?

    Asked by sylviahare on April 28, 2015 at 12:30 PM
    If I add them as thumbnails would the full size image show up in the finished sent form?

    When you upload an image a preview of it will show next to it along with the link so that you can see what it looks like at a glance when viewing submissions.

    If you meant something else then please explain in case I have misunderstood you.

    I am totally confused now. Because my original question has been split into two separate ones it is hard for me to explain and keep track of answers. I originally inquired about an e-card form and the other person was helping me. So I am asking about the original request.....if I create a form hosted with you on your server, have my own pictures hosted on your server.. then the form would have the thumbnails inside.. the user selects an image they want to use in the e-card form and sends it. Would the recipient see the full sized image in their received form?

    Thank you.

    I do apologize if I created more confusion for you as I know you were trying to do the right thing.

    I split the questions up to avoid confusion you more mainly because it is more confusing when too many questions end up on the same thread even if they are "related" but are "separate topics". So this was the reason why they were split.

    You can easily find any questions you have asked via this quick link http://www.jotform.com/answers/user_threads.php?username=sylviahare 

    If you follow the two threads that I had split off from your original topic you can find the answers to each of your questions.

    You can find the answer here that I prepared when you were asking about Hosted Server Images.

    As for your other question that was about the thumbnails I had pushed that to this thread per the above response here in this thread to find out more about that.

    It seems to me that you are looking to possibly use the uploaded image for the user to select? If that is the case then unfortunately no that would not work. The images for your users to select has to be existing ones that you list at which point they can select those such as with the Image Radio Widget we have.

    Now if say they were to upload a file through the upload field on your form that could then be seen by them in your submission viewer as I first showed you above. It should also be seen in your email notification or for the user an autoresponder as a confirmation of what was received and that would contain the image to view.

    No need to apologize, you are just trying to help me I know :-)

    I just read through everything and need to decide what to do. I might do some testing first. Are the widgets and extra cost?

    Thank you and I really appreciate the help and support.
