Confluence 5.6: how do I set size and placement for inserted images?


I have a fairly large space with all the images with left justification and 500px in size. Is there a way to set the insert default so that images are automatically centered and 600px in size?

I'm sure I can do it with css. But I don't know how to reference images in Confluence. I've used wiki.content and ac:image and neither work.

Hello Rosemary, you can chose when inserting the image, while clicking on it there will be a pop-up menu with 3 options of sizes, and you can also choose a custom image size. You can limit the filesize though, if it is of any help.


Thanks for your response! I'm actually looking to set the default so I don't have to use the pop-up. I also want to automatically set the images to be centered when imported onto a page. Ideally, I also want to set the default and have all the existing images automatically re-sized and re-positioned so I don't have to do each page separately.

The current default is left justified, 500 px. How can I update that information?
