How to display uploaded image in the form emails or thank you message

In order to display uploaded images directly in your email or on thank you page, you should add IMG: prefix into your upload field tag. Example:

FROM: {uploadImage}
TO:  {IMG:uploadImage} 

This prefix will create an image with the original dimensions of the uploaded image. If you want to specify dimensions, you should provide them as arguments. Such as: {IMG:uploadImage:100:200will put an image 100px wide and 200px tall. However, if you'd like the width or height to be auto-calculated just leave them blank. Example:

{IMG:uploadImage::200} - width will be automatically calculated with a 200px height.

    In my case the pictures are not displayed in the Email. (only a small little x-ed box)

    You can test it by yourself:

    What is the suggested size (or best size) for a Jorform form header image? I would likely use 1200 x 630 pixels. Does Jotform staff have a suggestion here?


    I am trying to use pre-existing forms by drag and dropping them into my jotform. I can't get them to save in the page. Please help. I can't find the answer anywhere. Thank you!

    I'm trying to use this feature to get the electronic signature to appear in the responder that goes back to the person who submitted. I tried inserting IMG: but it didn't work. Any other ideas?


    I have tried this simple step, and it works

    {IMG:NameOfPictureWidget::200} (as long as you have internet connection, because pictures have to reach the server to be displayed. Also, you have to enable "display pictures" in case of the security warning.

    Glad we found this article, because 5MB limit on attachment is very limited. Considering that only one picture can take as much disk space.

    Adding IMG: as shown in this page does not send the photo in the email.

    I add a Take Photo widget to the form then edit the content of the email body from {typeA} to {IMG:typeA} but it does not include the taken photo in the email.

    Please advise.

    Kind regards,

    Paul Wilson

    Does this work with Kloudless file uploader?

  • ruspubg

    Is there a similar way to get an image from multiple file upload field?

  • scats

    unfortunally it does not work at all. As the email is conntected to Trello we need the files/images as attachments. Isnt there any resolution about this?

    This works when I receive emails on my phone but not in Outlook office 365. I have to select download image from the small box with the red tick in it then Nothing appears

    using "Take Photo" Widget, how to adjust dimensions of the uploaded image? {IMG:uploadImage:100:200} / {IMG:uploadImagine:100:200} doesn't work.



    at the same time, i can't edit the source code in email setting like this:

    thanks in advance.

    Does this only work if I have not ticked in my settings the "Require log-in to view uploaded files." option?

  • iwizzforms

  • barbgreenlee

    Is there any way to do this with an uploaded PDF instead of an image?

  • purearts

    I'm getting a small box in my responder and notification emails instead of the actual image. When I right click on the small box and "open in new tab" I get an error 404 - The requested URL /proxy/aJktzIkdaD_IOtEdjSk00KWZRKtirmnjfcaIFNEeTIWD5876CTisG_pmNJ0sOTpj2z25YfgzeVcatp0ElJbZBFP8IQM-9-AuYNlgHLh2Pq96WxxxdPDRabtIc48CF2aJUUQmWuVfzjUWLeHzzJvx4k7wbk6uAjGzx-8DdvAO4g5S4pCZFmx_AWZVF_rEwqf7yGELTMqtqFO8=s0-d-e1-ft was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

    What am I doing wrong?
