    I need help with contact form

    How can I change my email address from text into an image? Someone told me that this way it won't be picked up by spam bots and it will reduce spam.

    You can use sIFR to change it.

    sIFR would be a bad idea, sIFR is designed to allow search engines to view the contents (which also means spambots will be able to read it as ordinary text), the only safe way to provide the email address would be to take a screenshot of the area where the email address is visible on the page, crop it, save it as an image and embed it in the page using img tags (though in this case you must ensure an alternative is provided as screen readers will not see the email address).
