    I want to insert an image into one of my notification emails.   The image button brings up a dialog that is looking for a URL.   However,  I want to just supply a file to be uploaded from my computer.   (like inserting images on the form itself).   Can I do this?  

    Even more sophisticated, can I apply conditions to showing the image in the email based on a form field value.  (like on the form itself?)

    Please see this thread about getting images displayed in email alerts.

    Regarding the second part of your question, creating various alerts that would be very similar to each other, except for the image tags they contain, and having the alerts sent only if certain conditions are met, by setting up separate "Send an e-mail after submission" conditions, would accomplish your objective.

    If you need additional help with this, do let us know.

    I read the thread, but I am too inexperience to understand it.  Where do I put the tag?  When you say "IMG:uploadimage",  do I replace "uploadimage" with the fully qualified file name from my computer?


    I tried using the image button and inserted the "IMG:C:/path/filename" in the field where the URL is asked for.  That didn't seem to work.

    Sorry...I'm a neophyte.


    Thanks in advance!

    OK, OK.... I fugured soemthing out.  Not sure if it''s what you suggested though.   I did an insert image into my form...and asked to insert one of the already uploaded images.  From the properties of that iimage,  I copied the URL/file name on JotForm into my clip board  and pasted that into the URL field in the email image.

    Wll that get me into trouble?   The image showed in m test email.

    Thats fine. We have no issues with you using links/placeholders to your images that have been uploaded to JotForm in your email notifications.
