    I can submit a form and use my webcam for a picture, but when I edit the form, my web cam loads and "erases" the original capture.

    Is there a way to preserve the original values using the Edit Form feature?   This also happens on pictures.  I can submit a form and use my webcam for a picture, but when I edit the form, my web cam loads and "erases" the original capture.

    I do not see any widgets for taking pictures on your earlier linked form, 62075296192157. I only see a regular file upload field, which will only prompt for a file to be uploaded (or an image taken by a webcam) when its button is clicked:

    With this particular field, after making a submission and using the Edit Submission link, on my end it correctly shows images which were initially submitted:

    Could you please let us know which form field or widget you are using when the value gets replaced simply by opening the edit link? We will be happy to help and troubleshoot, but at the moment the only image capturing field on this form seems to be working fine when editing submissions - the old uploaded images remain.

    We look forward to your response with more details. Thank you.
