Is it possible to reference an image in source control (FishEye/Crucible) from a Confluence Page?

Tim Sheppard Apr 01, 2012

This would allow us to maintain images in our current source control and always refer to the current version in our documentation, rather than having to update attached images as a separate process.

Is this functtionality provided, or what alternatives are there that would provide similar capabilities?

Many Thanks

You should be able to use images of any format, but whether they display or not will depend on your browser.

Does that help?
