How can I remove images from Confluence that have already been removed from a page?


I upload an image to Confluence. I decide I don't like it, so I delete the image. When I go to create a gallery, that image still appears, which tells me that it is still hanging out somewhere in the system. How can I remove it for good? Thank you!

Hi Erin,

 go to the attachments of your page and delete the image there.

Changing a page in Confluence does not remove any attachment. It is just not displayed anymore.

The Gallery macro loads all of your images attached to the page.
