  1. Add the prefix to the Unique Name of your Upload element. For example, change {fileUpload} to {IMG:fileUpload}. This prefix will create an image with the original dimensions of the uploaded image.

Once you finish your setup, the Uploaded Image will be displayed on the Emails or Thank you page right after the form submission.

Pro Tips:
If you want to specify dimensions, you should provide them as arguments. Such as {IMG:fileUpload:100:200} will put an image 100px wide and 200px tall.

If you’d like the width or height to be auto-calculated just leave them blank. For example, {IMG:fileUpload::200} – the width will be automatically calculated and the height will be 200px.
