How to Take a Photo and Upload It to Jotform Mobile Forms

August 26, 2021

Imagine the convenience of taking and uploading a photo to a form without leaving the form. Thanks to Jotform Mobile Forms, you can do just that.

When creating your form, add the

 Take Photo widget. Although you can use other File Upload fields to accept photos, the Take Photo widget has a built-in camera app that doesn’t require you to open the camera app on your phone or tablet. This saves you from going through a few extra steps outside the Jotform Mobile App to take and save a photo. After you take a photo using the widget, the photo is automatically uploaded to the form and ready to be submitted.

Here’s how to set up the widget on Jotform Mobile Forms.

In the Form Builder, tap the

+ (Add) icon.

Under the Widgets tab in the Form Elements side-panel, click the Take Photo widget (first on the list of widgets) to add it to the form. You can also drag and drop the widget to add and/or position it on the form.


Once you’ve added the widget, the Widget Settings will appear automatically on the right side of the screen. Set the Camera Facing option (Front/Back), and then click the Update Widget button.


You are now ready to take and upload a photo to your form.
