Image resize on Cloud

Hi there,

since moving to Confluence Cloud, I can't find the specific controls to resize the image, where you can enter a specific pixel value. I only have two grab handles left and right, which honestly don't work well.


According to the documentation (see screenshot), these controls should also be available on cloud. But I can't seem to find (or enable) them.


Thank you kindly in advance.

The option to edit image settings (resize, paragraph position) with the new tool is not accessible for images in a table. They need to be resized/positioned outside of the table, then moved.

I commented with this frustration on ticket [CONFCLOUD-67554], but I'm not sure if that's the appropriate task- or if this is a bug that should have its own task.

Hey Alex, welcome to the Community and thanks for raising this!

The controls shown in your second screenshot are described on the documentation for our old/legacy editing experience. In your first screenshot, the handles on the side are part of the new editing experience. As the new editing experience is rolling out, you've found that the documentation isn't particularly clear on what's happening.

The new editing experience is still under development. We've got some documentation that can help explain what's available and what's been recently added:


Currently there's an open feature request about resizing in the new editor:

I'd recommend voting on those issues and watching them in our Jira instance if you're interested in getting updates about their progress. In the meantime, it's possible to get the Legacy editor still. When creating a new page, either select the Legacy editor template (most instances have this option now) or if you see a template that says "Try the new editing experience", just click on any of the other templates.


Dear Daniel,


thank you kindly for your reply and links. I have voted on them.


I tried to get the Legacy Editor (that's exactly what I'm looking for), but when creating a new page, my cloud instance doesn't show any sort of such option - see screenshot.

Is there any other option to no "Try the new editing experience"?

Is there any update on this? This is not a very extravagant feature request and something that was already working perfectly fine in previous versions.


Is there really no workaround to this?

Hey @Alex_Ciorapciu ,

Sorry for the radio silence here. I've been working with the development team and we've discovered that your Cloud instance is part of a cohort that is "new editor only". Since some number of months ago, any newly-created Confluence Cloud instances are 100% on the new editing experience and won't have access to the old editor. Unfortunately there's no toggle we can flip on your instance to provide access to the Legacy editor.

For your instance and any newly-created Confluence Cloud instances, CONFCLOUD-67554 holds the key to the image resizing you're looking for.

Dear @Daniel_Eads 


thank you for the update and for your effort. It is greatly appreciated. 

We are an image focused company and rely on at least basics of image handling when collaborating in our wiki. 


What is difficult to understand is the state of the ticket: gathering interest. This does not give me much hope, it will ever get done. Without a clear commitment, it might be time to move on.
