I would look into our source editor.

It will give you the ability to edit the raw html of a page and ensure that your items are formatted like the following

  &lt;li&gt; {picture1} &lt;/li&gt;
  &lt;li&gt; {picture2} &lt;/li&gt;

If using using the new edittor (aka, Confleunce version is greater then 4.0) we can start the list and at the end of the first line press 'shift+enter' to start a new line (but not a new numbered line). Then drag and drop the image into place and then press 'enter' which will start the next numbered line.

The above may be a bit confusing so I made a video at the following link as well showing the process, enjoy.

This is the holy grail of Confluence editing! I have no idea how many hours I've struggled with formatting lists containing code blocks and images but that stops now

This should be the accepted answer.

I did it putting the pictures inside a div macro with a style display:table to solve positioning errors.

with Wiki Markup, it works like this:

# abd \\ \\ !po1.jpg! \\ \\
# bdfs \\ \\ !po1.jpg! \\ \\
# asdf \\ \\ !po1.jpg! \\ \\



I found you can paste the image to a part of the page that is not a numbered list such as the bottom. Then you can click and drag it to under the numbered line you want.

If you paste the image to the number line it wont work and you cant drag the image to be under the line either. It must add something to the markup when you paste an image to the numbered line. You can only click and drag the image under the numbered line if no image was on the numbered line before.

You can also drag a picture to a page.
