    I have the same request, ask me the size before submission. We have forms that have 5 or more pictures and most of our users do not know how to resize their photos. I understand that it is not a simple request with the way Jotform works; however it would be a welcomed addition.

    Unfortunately, there's no update yet on the original thread you replied here. And it seems like it won't be implemented anytime soon. 

    Could you please provide us more details of the feature you are requesting? What wold you like to have? Do you like an automated way of resizing the images or you want your users to resize the image upload before submission? 

    Currently, you can set a maximum allowed file size for your file uploads, it is mentioned in this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/33-Changing-the-upload-size-limit 

    You can also check the available file upload widgets that we have here: https://widgets.jotform.com/category/file_upload 

    I hope that helps.

    Hi Charlie,

    I am looking for a way my users can submit a photo any size and the jot form could resize that photo to fit in a predesigned area on the form.

    Thanks.

    Or maybe there is a way to have a preset image box telling users what size image will fit in that box?  So users can ensure they resize their pics before uploading?

    Thanks again.

    Thank you for your requests. We have now opened a widget request with our Widgets Team. They are going to work on adding a photo upload widget that also allows users to resize/crop their photos. 

    We will let you know when this widget is implemented.

    We are attempting to collect some 20+ photos per form submission and the upload time is slowing down our field team.  Their phones automatically take photos that are wonderful but way too big.. 1 - 2 MB per photo would be fine.. please consider this functionality

    Just checking if there has been any update on this. We did find one work around and that is using the other camera ( selfie cam ) as it takes a lower resolution picture. This problem is only intensifying as the cameras on the phones get better.

    The request ticket for the feature is still in 'Opened' status and is still assigned to a developer. Unfortunately our assigned developer have no new update on the progress of the request ticket at this time.

    Please understand that since it is a new feature being requested, it could take more time to develop.

    Thanks.
