Is it possible to add or link to images in the description for a custom field in Jira cloud?

I would like to help users through a jira cloud check list by using some photos either embedded directly in the description field or linked so they appear in the desciption of a custom field.  Is this possible and how?

Hi Tracy,

This can be accomplished by using markup formatting in the field description with a link to an image hosed on the Cloud instance or web server where the image is accessible publicly.

As an exe upload an image to an issue in your site and copy the url of that image and use it in a format like the following in the desired field description will pull the image from that issue and display it under the field:


Noting the above format will display the full size image so you can also add in additional modifiers to adjust the size like the following EXE if the original image is too large: 


 More examples of the rendering capabilities can be pulled up in the instance by selecting the ? icon under the fields description while editing the custom field details here:

OR modify the following URL to your sites Base_URL to jump directly to the formatting options for images:
