Confluence display document image with a caption? Edited

Is there a way to upload a file within confluence, display it as an image but have a caption display underneath it? 

I know I could do it manually by setting up a 2x2 table and inserting the document in to once cell, and then the caption with a link to the document in the other. But it feels like duplicated effort. 

I want to have a page in confluence for shared team documents. So there will be a lot listed. The images look the nicest, but I'm thinking on a page with 20 or 30 documents it could become hard to navigate!

Has anyone else had this problem? Or something similar! Any suggested work arounds would be appreciated!

Hi Hollie,

There's a feature request for captions, since it's not a built-in Confluence feature yet:

Please vote on the case in order to show the popularity of such a feature, comment your use case, and watch it in order to be updated of any progress.

If you're on Confluence server, you may be able to make use of one of these Marketplace add-ons to include captions on your images.

I hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,
