My question relates to setting up a form to dynamically select a previously uploaded image for a particular user. The workflow is as follows.

1. User submits Form A which registers user. This form includes an image upload field for their profile image/avatar.
2. User submits Form B in which I would like to retrieve the user's profile image submitted in Form A above.
3. Form B creates a new post and the image above will be set as the post's featured image.

I have attempted to use the Dynamic Field to retrieve the submitted image from my own entry. While there is a second option in the dropdown list, it isn't showing anything, i.e. the second option is blank.

Nothing seems easy with FF so I am hoping someone here has accomplished something similar. Thanks in advance.

Dynamic fields store the entry id of the lookup record, not the value of the image field. This may help you understand how to display the image from a dynamic field. https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/dynamic-vs-lookup-fields/
