Printable images in Estimates

#1

Hi All

Quite new to QF - recommended by Stephen at Mear Technology

I’m looking to up my Estimate game:
Is there a way to insert images into quotes

I have tried using html in the description section, but when the client prints off the PDF the images fail to print

Anyone had better luck with this?

Thanks in advance
Stu

Guys this is something we have been meaning to request for ages. (Just never got round to it).

We have been using HTML img tags but it is a pain (especially as you are stripping some html now) and does not transfer on to print PDF.

It is really helpful to show clients what they are getting.

Hi @MearTech @Stutech

The <img> tag is one that’s supported and not stripped out, so this shouldn’t be an issue.

Can I just confirm you’re trying the <img> tag in the invoice line description box?

width tags are stripped and are not rendered in the PDF library

Yes we are using the tag and a URL to image

You should be able to specify these through the style tag.

For example:

<img src="https://www.example.com/img.jpg" style="width: 200px; height: 150px;" />

yes you can but they still strip in PDF.

It would just be nicer if some basic WYSIWYG functions were added for your non IT customers. I code HTML so it’s not an issue for me just time consuming. :smiley:

PDF is an issue though

Unfortunately I’m not as html savvy as Stephen

I’m finding it very frustrating that I can’t upload any images I often use stored locally, or link images (even using the URL) from my Instagram

Could you clarify what you mean here? I upload images I use often so it is possible.

Hi Lurch,

If I had images locally on a PC I wanted to upload

I’m not particularly comfortable with html or having to use any code in general. For my uses right now it just isn’t very intuitive

Thanks
Stuart

I think we’re talking at cross purposes here. You don’t need to now any HTML to upload anything, you can just head to the document manager and upload images there.
