    For taking pictures, you can use Take Photo widget of Jotform. Please find the link below:


    For drawing things on a picture, you can use Draw On Image widget. Please find the link below:


    There is not a widget to do both. But you can use both of the widgets.

    If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact.

    From what I understand you are looking for, Michael, is for the user to upload an image onto your form, and then draw something on that newly uploaded image before they submit the form to you.

    Users can upload pictures through your forms, and they can also draw over images inside the Draw On Image widget:

    When setting up the widget, simply make sure to select the option "Allow user to change image?" to Yes:

    You will receive their uploaded images with drawings in your submissions:

    Please try it out, and let us know should you need further assistance.
