    No thumbnail generated for uploaded images, slow load in submissions folder.

    Asked by LDMedia on February 19, 2012 at 07:21 AM

    I recently used jotform to collect submissions for a photo contest, many of these were high res JPEGs.

    When reviewing submissions the submissions page appears to be loading the full size image and rescaling it to be smaller for every single file. This takes a really long time!

    Could you please use php GD or similar to generate a thumbnail on submission of an image file so as that may be served up in the submission review page?

    Hello LDmedia,

    I will forward this to the development team and ask them to have this added as a feature request.  Unfortunately, we cannot give you a timeframe to when this feature will be implemented.  We will inform you as soon as we have updates on this. 

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    Thanks for your suggestion. One possible temporary solution might be to disable the images on the submissions page. Yo ucan do that using the Settings icon on the top right side and unchecking the upload fields.

    Yup indeed. I am learning to generate thumbnails using some manual tools these days. You can work hard on it and make progress. Good luck.
