The Post Image field allows users to upload an image that is added to the Media Library and Gallery for the post that is created. This field works in tandem with the other Post fields to allow you to create a form that can generate post data from a user submission. The Post Image allows users to upload the following filetypes: GIF, JPG and PNG.
