How can I get images to not show larger image when clicked?

You can't display an image in the new editor without it displaying a larger image when you click on it.  This is a very undesirable behavior. Images are basic to web pages.


I would like to associated a link of my choice with and image.

If I can't do that I don't want it to do anything at all.


I understand the images are now implemented as attachments, but that is an implementation detail.  People need to display images without them they acting always in a preview mode.

Hi Kate,

First of all, welcome to Atlassian Community. Happy to have you join us.

From the Confluence Cloud Editor Roadmap, I was able to discover that the implementation of this feature in the new editor is currently being worked on:

This request is currently in the Implementation Phase according to our New Features Policy. The next step is for it to be released to the public.

If you vote on the above request, you'll be added to the list of watchers and get updates on when this is ready.

In the meantime, you can use the Legacy Editor Template for pages where you need to link an image to text. You'll be able to convert these pages to the new editor template once it's ready. Another option would be to add the link below the image as text.

If you don't have the Legacy Editor Template, let me know, and I can help you get that enabled.

Take care,
