    I have inspected your form http://www.myjotform.com/form/60515011007538 and I saw that you have two file upload fields. Your users will also be able to upload images from mobile devices. They will need to open gallery on their phones and select image that they want to upload. 

    If you want to prevent your users to submit the form without uploading image to your form, then you need to make upload field to be required.

    If you want to allow your users to add text for uploaded photos, then I would suggest you to add text area fields to your from.

    More about file upload field allowed file types and how to change upload limit size of file upload field, you can find inside of this guides:
