Insert an image file from the web?

I guess this is one dumb question but how do I insert a picture on my side from the web? 
I can only upload them or choose pictures from GIPHY, Dropbox or Google drive. 

Where and how can I insert them from a homepage?

Do you mean via URL? 


If you have the URL you can always right-click on a picture or go directly to the image URL and just download the picture and then upload it with the upload option you are referring to.

Yeah I mean via url. 
So I do have to download and upload it again in confluence and cannot just use the url from the picture itself?

I found a method on:  but it doesn't seem to work anymore? 

Insert an image file from the web

You can display an image from a remote web page on your Confluence page, without needing to attach it to your page. You need to know the URL for the image, not for the web page it appears on.  This is only available for image files, not other types of files (like documents). 

To display an image from a web page:

  1. While editing the page, position the cursor where you want to place the image.
  2. Choose Insert > Files and choose Images from the web.
  3. Enter a URL for the image. (example:
  4. Choose Preview to check that the URL and image are correct.
  5. Choose Insert.
