It looks like the editor for blogs was just updated - when I upload an image, I don't see an option to resize it, so images are coming out way too big. Is there a way to do this within Confluence? Or will I have to manually resize them first now?
Hi Nick / Sorin,
The ability to resize images was changed to allow sizing via a snap grid system for easy, quick, and predictable resizing. There is also the ability to align and wrap the image according to your page layout. You'll notice the size bars when you select / hover over an image and the context menu when you select the image. Once you drop an a new image into a page, you should be able to simple click and drag the side bar next to the image to scale the image as required.
See additional conversation for details from the Confluence Product Management team.
If you are not seeing this new experience, then please provide more details and we can investigate further.
Thank you for the canned response. You are clearly either ignoring all the feedback [or] need to turn over this feed to a different Product Owner. you clearly do not understand the issue.
The link you provided is FILLED with complaints about this. It's almost laughable as if you're playing a mean old joke on all the users. Did you read the comments from the link you just shared :)
Read the comments.
The ability to resize imaged "DID NOT CHANGE", it was REMOVED.
How many of these canned responses can you provide before acknowledging this is a real issues that many users are encountering.
I can provided you a dozen of examples how the images look like thrash, just tell me where i can privately share the links with you.
Thanks Chris. Unfortunately this means an important piece of functionality has been removed. We often upload mockups as part of our internal product blog, which means they almost always need to be resized manually to fit well. Looks like no we will have to resize them manually ourselves before uploading, which takes extra time. It would be great to see manual resizing added back in.
I have to agree with @Ilya Blokh that not being able to (re)size an image in a blog post means I have to go back and edit the size iteratively until I get it right. I tend to capture an image so that I don't have to worry about pixelation, which means I usually have an image too large for the spot. And I did try the context menu you mentioned, but this did not make the image fit - it is still far too large to be useful.
I hope you take this feedback back to your developers and bring back the option to manually resize an image.
Quick update. The priority has been increased on the ability to resize an image in the new editor experience. It will likely be a new experience rather than the prior pixel controller. After speaking with the team, I'd estimate early next quarter (Oct 2018), depending on the final solution that is implemented. So it's hopefully not far away!
I will see if I can track down the JAC ticket you can follow for updates. Alternatively you can follow the What's New Blog.
Hi @Paul Courtney,
The new editor experience is being rollout out in a staged approach across the different editor experiences in Confluence. Blogs was the first to receive the new editor, followed by Meeting Minutes. Changes were required to enable the editor to work for both New pages as well as render and be able to edit existing content. More details on: confluence-editing-improvements. I will see if we can get further updates made to this page.
Hopefully that explains why the experience you are currently seeing on blog pages is different to what you see on regular pages. In the end, the entire editor experience will be consistent not only in the product but cross-product!
@Sorin Bica I unmarked the thread as solved (I agree this could be confusing) and I believe the product team will be following up to get more information from the impacted users.
Note that I also did remove some content that was worded as a personal attack, which is against our community guidelines. Please be mindful of this going forward. Thanks.
I would like to see this fixed as well.
The old picture tool was great, you could select one of three default sizes or type in your own size for the image.
With the latest changes, the development team has removed functionality.
Now my confluence pages look bad and the team members I share these pages with are not happy on having to do extra scrolling to get around a HUGE image.
This has now become less collaborative.
Nope... my developers now loathe looking at the documentation on larger monitors, which they all have.
There's one confluence page where i have the screenshot of a mobile device layout, you literally have to scroll 3 times and the image is pixelated because of this "new" feature.
Three thumbs down: 👎👎👎
I'm not sure what's worst... the issue on this thread, or this gem that took almost a year to fix: How to add a sub-task in the next-gen project type (Agility)
The Atlassian team does a lot of good work, it's just mind-boggling why some of these basic things, that could probably be fixed in weeks, if not days (i mean how hard is it too also hard a resize component here?)
I'm sorry, but I don't buy the argument that the Atlassian team does good work when its been at least six months since anybody replied to this thread and it still isn't resolved AND they're marking this complete because they think the locking-images-to-grids thing is a good thing. Good teams don't do garbage work like this.
