Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage

Add External Images

In the old version I used to be able to click the link button and paste a URL. The URL was a image permalink from MyBalsamiq. The image was shown in my requirements and was updated as I updated the mockup in balsamiq.

Does this functionality still exist? I have been pasting the image permalink directly into the requirements as is, but then the image doesn't show. It's nice to be able to see the image while reading without having to open another window to view the image.

Please help! Thank you!

Hello Molly,

Thank you for contacting us about this.

There's a feature request below to be able to include externally hosted images on a page in the new editor:

In the meantime, you can copy the image from MyBalsamiq and paste it into the page, or download the image to your desktop and attach it that way. Keep in mind that updates done on MyBalsamiq won't be pushed to the Confluence page.

Let me know if you have any questions about that.



Being able to point to external images sure would be nice...
