Hi Aleš,
  1. Go to Confluence Admin > Configuration > Plugins > Show System Plugins
  2. Find Confluence Paste in the list, and click it.
  3. Click Manage Plugin Modules to see the full list of configurable modules for Autoconvert
  4. The entire plugin can be disabled, or each module can be disabled individually. 

I believe the plugin you should disable is Autoconvert Skitch.

Please check the link for further information.

Hope this works for you.

I couldn find it! Many thanks. And when I want to disable only inserting images from url, then should I disable Autoconvert Skitch?

"Automatic handling of Skitch "Share Image" URLs pasted into the page. (Transforms Skitch "Share Image" URLs into embedded images.)" Once you disable that module, only the URL which was copied will be shown. Please tell me what was not found. Weren't you able to see the Manage Plugin Module or weren't you able to find Autoconvert Skitch? Please check if you have administrator rights. Thanks.

I am admin so i have access there. And i see all enabled modules for that, but i want disable only inserting images from web, other think I want to let enabled.

Do you see the button disable as the screenshot on Are you able to select the module Autoconvert Skitch then disable?

Ouu sorry, I wrote it bad. I couldnt find it before but now with your help I did it :) But what i dont know is that which module I should disable to disabled insert images from external website. Others functions (like inserting youtubes, converting jira links,etc..) I want to let enabled.

Disable only Autoconvert Skitch module. Don't change the others, and it will work for you.

Perfect! Many thanks for you help!
