Hello!

I have a form that I have created in InDesign and export to a 24pg pdf. I know how to make form fields in Adobe Acrobat X Pro, but we want to also allow users to upload images next to the yes/no questions.

Example
Wind damage to building? [ ] yes  [ ] no  Photos: (big space for photos)

Fire damage to building? [ ] yes  [ ] no  Photos: (big space for photos)

Is there a way to allow the end user to do this in Acrobat without a database?

Thank you!

Short answer is NO .. attaching files to a PDF isn't possible in a form.  You could have a button which creates a mailto: request and the person could email the photos. and you could  combine it with a completed form.  Or you could have a HTML link which opens a web-form where they can upload images online.
