Image Upload

Estimated reading: 4 minutes 68 views

This controller allows uploading image files only. On a desktop computer, the default is to open browser to select a file. On tablets and smart phones, uploading a photo will usually open the camera or gallery by default, depending on the type of device and its configuration [there is not always control over this].

Types and Validation

File nameAt the end of the process and sending copies by email, the file name can be converted to a meaningful name, for example “Israel_Israeli_Photo_Document_01234”. Insert text or select values ​​from the input fields by typing the “@” character.
In case that the file name uses an input from the form and this input was not entered, it will use a random file name.
If you won’t set anything here, the system will generate a random file name for you.
*Important: You cannot set the same file name for more then one image upload controller on the same template.
Convert image to PDFWhen set to ON, an image file will be converted to a PDF file, so in archival and sending copies the file will be sent as PDF and not as an image.
Copy from clipboardWhen set to ON, it allows the client to paste an image from the clipboard into the field. Usually important for salespeople who want to upload a picture or an Excel table into the form.
Convert Image to DataOCR can be used to load the uploaded image and get back data structures from the certificate. For details see the OCR guide.
Add file to client email at the end of the processEnable embedding uploaded image into the PDF result produced in Cellosign. The image is embedded only on the result and not during the image collection (when form is processed by the end user). make sure to add “Accessibility value” that will be embedded to PDF markup.
Add file to client emailWhen switched on, attachment will be added to client email. Attachment is added to client regardless of the control permission. For example a Workflow where a file upload control is permitted to only one client and not the other, event than the other client will also receive the attachment in email.
Default is false (not attached to client email)

In the HTML template the uploaded image will be shown as part of the final PDF file for both the client and the agent. In addition, the agent will receive the uploaded image as an attachment in the archive email.

  2. Drag your control onto the PDF layout
  3. Resize the container as needed
  4. Turn “Insert image in result document” on
