Hi Newbie here. I have made a file (with Acrobat DC forms). This file shoud be sent to a worker (on his mobile phone or tablet that has Adobe DC installed). To dokument the job, I want him to take a photo and place it inn the file, and after he signs the form I want this to be returned to my email adress

What type of mobile device is he using? That sort of thing won't work with any Adobe PDF viewers, but it can work with PDF Expert on iOS.

That script will work with PDF Expert on iOS, but nothing else that I'm aware of. Definitely not with any of Adobe's mobile PDF viewers.

If I use PDF expert on my iphone or android device, will there be a button that that could take a picture from the mobile and place it directly in the pdf dokument that is recieved in email?

Will the PDF expert also do a return to sender (mailto:xxx@xxxxx.no) automatically when signed?

PDF Expert is only available on iOS, not Android. The method you'd use is the JavaScript you posted earlier.

When the button that has the buttonImportIcon script attached is pressed, the user will be prompted to take a picture (or select one from the camera roll) and the picture will appear as the button's icon.

I found the android alternative for PDF Expert in which inserting a picture into PDF form works using javascript " event.target.buttonImportIcon();": PDF viewer by pspdfkit.
