    How can I make a preview of my uploaded image?

    Asked by alexjon on November 04, 2015 at 05:11 PM

    Hello! Need your help very much!

    I want to use JotForm it's so perfect for my needs and Filepicker widget that you have 99% percent perfect for me.  In JotForm in css section I can modify Filepicker "upload file" button and make it big and square, but When I'm uploading a file the name of this file goes under this button and no preview of this file, it's Just a text under this button with name of file. But I really need to replace this button with a preview of uploaded pic. I want to make bussines in my country like sticky9.com, you can try to visit sticky9 then try to upload pic and you Will see a preview.  Or please go to coaster.ly and you Will understand what iam talking about.  Ive been looking for perfect variant so long and finally Ive stopped at JotForm and your widget, pls help.

    How about using the Image Upload Preview widget instead.

    Here is the demo form you can test http://form.jotformpro.com/form/51232249299964?

    Hope this help. Let us know if this cannot work as an alternative to the Filepicker App tool.

    Hello jonathan,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to preview uploaded images in form if you are using "Filepicker" widget. You should consider adding "Image Upload Preview" or "Drag and Drop Upload" widget in your form.

    Thank you!
