Is there a plugin or some other neat way of pasting screenshots and images into the confluence 4 editor? Eg take screenshot, paste right into confluence. Would save a lot of mucking around and make documentation a pile easier.
this is completely untrue...after 7years later...
tested in 6.8.10
You can copy from clipboard and paste in an edit page but saving the page will render it as a Broken Image.
This is evident in 6.8.1. Pretty sure 6.10 has the same results
This should not be an accepted answer because this repeatedly fails for me in Chrome. They must have had some special Chrome back in 2011. Weirdly enough this also doesn't work on the iOS app, it's the same issue where the image will appear in the edit window but not publish.
My documentation is heavily reliant on screenshots, it would be great if this worked consistently instead of manually uploading images.
Reason for images still getting shown as broken images in more recent Confluence versions is probably that an image gets pasted as web image by default if you copy it directly from the web and a lot of servers do not allow hotlinking of their content.
As a consequence, the image can't show up in view mode because the remote server detected the hotlinking and prevented the image from loading a second time.
I'm using the Cloud version of Atlassian, and I'm unable to cut and paste images into Confluence. Or rather, initially it appears I can: the pasted image appears in my article. But after I save the page, the image now shows as broken. If I save and then upload the image instead, then this works fine, but of course much slower.
I'm using the latest Chrome browser on a Windows 10 PC.
There is a help article here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/confkb/when-pasting-an-image-into-the-editor-the-image-is-not-attached-correctly-757729008.html
The article above says to check this:
I've checked the above, and everything looks fine:
29 of 29 modules enabled
I assume this is a bug? Or am I doing something wrong? It's pain to have to save then upload images first.
Hi chaps, I'm experiencing the same issue.
Currently, I've got to save images locally and upload them manually into confluence prior to their insertion into confluence page - which is time-consuming workaround.
Has anyone found better and working solution or workaround please?
You can capture not just webpages, but anything that is on yoru screen (word docs, PPT slides, etc). Then just
SnagIt is only needed if you want to capture an image larger then your screen is displaying and Jing has simple annotation tools that get you 80%.
If not using any kind of add-on and the source material is in a web browser, copying of images can be done, but only one image at a time.
In my use case, I was trying to copy a Jira ticket to Confluence. This is still a bit annoying to have to do if you have a lot of images.
I would look into some of the other options from other users in this thread, if you find that you need to do something like this on a more regular basis.
