How do I enable this functionality?
After installing and activating Gravity Forms File Upload Pro, File Upload Pro can be activated on any File Upload field in your forms. Let’s step through that process.
|Enable Multi-File Upload for any File Upload field.|
|Enable Enable File Upload Pro in the Perks tab.|
|If desired, Enable Cropping in the same tab.|
Now that you know how to activate the new uploader, let’s dig into the finer points of File Upload Pro.
Ready to give your customers a professional file uploading experience? Our hand-crafted redesign of Gravity Forms’ File Upload field dynamically updates to suit the type of files you are uploading. Other improvements include a better visual progress indicator when uploading files, automatic image and file thumbnails, and a host of hand-crafted tweaks to improve the overall user experience.
Cropping and Recropping
Uploaded images can be cropped with ease. Simply click the uploaded image, adjust the size, and save your crop. Bad crop? Don’t re-upload the image. The original image is preserved so you can crop again until you get it just right.
You can enable cropping on any File-Upload-Pro-activated field by checking the Enable Cropping setting.
Activate the Require Crop setting to force cropping on uploaded images. The moment an image is uploaded, the crop interface will automatically launch.

Real time validation
If an uploaded file fails validation based on file type or size, File Upload Pro immediately provides a clear, helpful error message so the user can correct the problem before submitting their form.
GF File Upload Pro extends upon the solid foundation of Gravity Forms’ File Upload field. You can use the same merge tags you would use for any other file upload field.
