Hello, all. I am wondering if it is possible to create an interactive pdf form that contains frames into which someone could drop an image.  I would use In Design to create the form.

Not drop it, no, but they can import it by clicking the "frame" and then selecting the image. Add an "image" field for that.

I am looking for instructions online as to how to add an image field. Is that a function in ID or do I need to do that in Acrobat? If anyone has a link to instructions on how to create an image field, I would appreciate it. I have not done many interactive forms before so all this is new to me. Thanks!

In Acrobat (DC) it's a built-in option under the Add New Field tool, but all it really is is a button field with the Icon option selected as the layout and a simple script that executes on the MouseUp event:

event.target.buttonImportIcon();
