    Unfortunately, for this matter, we still do not have such feature. Can you provide more details on this such as your ideas on how you think you will be using this feature? This way, I can escalate a feature request with the proper details.

    We would love to be able to have the form attach pictures from our devices camera roll and automatically downsize them to a reasonable size (1mb to 200kb for instance). We are using the form to document solar power installations and to document initial site evaluations / sales leads. So we could want to potentially upload as much as 20-40 pictures to one clients form over the course of a few months, as their project progresses from sales lead to finished installation.

    Hi Jason, thanks for the additional info. I'm assuming that ultimately, regardless of how the image will be uploaded, your main goal is to have an option to resize the images being uploaded through your form to make the file sizes smaller.

    I have now set this thread as a feature request. Although I won't be able to give you any timeframe, rest assured, we'll keep you apprised on this same thread if/when there's an update.

    In case you have other questions, just open a new thread so we can help.
