    Hi Carolyn,

    That is correct. If you want to include an image/picture in the email message, the Source must be a link or URL. The image must be hosted/uploaded already.

    You can usually use uploaded image from other source i.e. Dropbox, Google drive, etc.. by using a shared link/URL of the source.

    Alternatively, you can use the Image field to upload image on your form. And then use the source of the Image field as the Source of image in the email message.

    Review the resolution on this thread.


    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hi there
    Ok- thank you for the response. Now I have it set up on a google drive with a link
    its still not appearing in the jot form. It appears as a little square jpeg image. Does it have to be something else? Like a gif or a png?

    Hello Carolyn,

    Please try the following:

    1. Open your image that you already uploaded and right click with your mouse on it - Copy image address:

    Or just copy this URL, it's the same:


    2. Paste that in Image source field like my colleague Jonathan explained:

    That should do it:

    If you encounter any issue please let us know.

    Thank you!
