How to add a border around the image ?
There was such an option in the previous version of Confluence and it was helpful, especially while working with documentation and wireframes.
But I can't find it in the updated interface, please advice.
How about they just put the feature back so we can add borders. I also add lots of screenshots of browsers and the white space at the bottom makes the page look awful. Having to manually add a border to each image now before inserting the image :(
Quite a lot of what I do in Confluence is documenting UIs, and this involves including quite a lot of screenshots. Many screenshots have a white background and need a border to make them clear in the documentation.
If I can't easily add a border in Confluence, as I could before, the workflow becomes much more laborious: paste the screenshot into another package, add a border, copy it, and then paste that image into Confluence.
It may not sound like much, but I typically paste a LOT of screenshots into Confluence when creating documentation, so this has really added a ton of extra effort and time for that and then for every time an image needs updating.
Hello fellow wordsmiths and documentalists.
This issue has been in the "short term backlog" since 2020.
The only way to get this essential feature back is to take the time and voice our urgency and displeasure here:
Thanks in advance!
I'm also frustrated by the amount of white space it adds above and below a (horizontal) rectangular image. Does anyone have any suggestions for eliminating that?
Thank you for updating the link!
I also encourage people to leave comments such as this one :
Can we accelerate this?
Extremely disappointing when features are removed. It's a regression.
I completely echo Beth Anne's sentiment:
" You physically cannot set out good documentation without being able to border off your images, and we can't even use tables effectively for that - something even OneNote has available. I've stopped recommending Atlassian as a product on the basis of this feature not being available, I used to spend ages carrying on about how good this software was.
Hurry this one up please.
Or copy my super-tacky eye catcher from that same page, https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFCLOUD-67895, where it has color and emoticons too!
It is really really really janky but a workaround for this is:
Create a table
Merge all cells in table
Colour the table background something distinctive
Remove header row and Header column
Drag image into table
(janky but it gives an image the distinction between it and the background that OP was looking for - example below)

Along with the plug-in (EFFECTS) https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/4128-borders-n-shapes/
I can quickly take any image and apply a border of any thickness and colour, but it's still a P.I.T.A. compared to the previous existing built in feature
