    1. Hello Chad! That is exactly the definition between shared links and direct links. Google Drive provides you a shared link and I would recommend using this free hosting service: and copy-paste the direct link generated in the Available Choices box.

    1. Hello Garrett,

      Thank you for your question and our apologies for the late response.

      Yes, there is a way to have that. In your Form Editor you will list only the text of your choices. Next, please go to Settings – Translations and find your field. Under the Translation column next to each choice you will add the following HTML tag:

      Finally, replace ImageHostedLinkHere with your image link. If needed, adjust the width and height in pixels. Please make sure that the image direct link is SSL secured.

      This workaround will display the images on the form link and in your email notifications you will receive the text.

      If you require any further information, feel free to contact our Custom Care team at or via live chat.

      Thank you!

    1. Hi,

      It is possible to upload image files by using an Image field or a HTML block. However, when adding an image as a option of a Choice field, only a URL can be used.

      In order for the image to display correctly, the URL needs to be SSL encrypted (marked by https://) and end with the image file type (such as .jpg or .png)


    1. Hello Martin,
      In order to have images shown as options in a Single/Multiple choice field, the URL where the image is hosted must have the right extension as you mentioned yourself. If you are uploading an image from the internet for example when you right click on it you have to choose < Copy image address> and paste it in the choice field where you want to display it.

    1. Hello Yasser,

      For the imagine display correctly the URL needs to end in the .jpg or .png format. When uploading and hosting the imagine you need to make sure that the URL ends in one of the two formats.
