    In order to achieve this, you need to lower down the width and height of the image and then make it as an image link. Here's a guide on how to do it.

    1. Insert an image using the Image tool. Select "Upload Image File".

    2. Choose a picture to upload then click the "Upload" button.

    3. Once uploaded, select the image field. You'll see the "Image Source" button at the top toolbar. Click it and you will see the URL where it was uploaded. You need to copy this URL.

    4. Paste the copied URL in the next button which is the "Image Link". Doing this will make the image act as an image link.

    5. Now you need to lower down the image size.


    If you need to add another image beside the first image, then you need to "Shrink" the first image and then redo the process.

    Alternatively, we have a lot of helpful widgets related to using image s in your form. Please check the widgets page: https://widgets.jotform.com/category/photo

    Hope this helps. Thank you.
