How to add a border around the image ?

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.

Hi @Igor Kravchenko 

For the new editor, this function isn't available.

You can watch the differneces from the old editor and the new editor here. Somewhere in the middle is the "image border".


I wasn't able to find any jira feature request in the backlog.

Regards, Dominic

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.

This is an ESSENTIAL and extremely URGENT feature! It is a super pain when documenting. I am currently having to create a table for each image and remove heading and all cells just so I can fake an image border.

I found a suggestion on the jira board.

Upvoting this request. Images with white backgrounds are really hard to distinguish.
