Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage

How can I make the screenshot/images in the description text bigger? Edited

The screenshot images are shown really small and you can't distinguish the content unless you click on the image and then you're shown a bigger version. That's an extra step than before (server version before migrating to cloud). In the server version, you could adjust the size of your screenshot/image right inside the description.

Thanks a ton for any help!

Hello @Diana von Ballmoos 

When the image is added to the description is it automatically setting to display a thumbnail, like this...?

You can try eliminating the "|thumbnail" attribute, and see if that makes the image bigger within the Description field display.

@Trudy Claspill can I change the default somewhere so it's not adding thumbnail to every image? It's getting tedious to constantly have to remove that text for every screenshot :(.

@Diana von Ballmoos 

It seems like this article says you can:

However I also found this in the JIRA Cloud backlog that seems to indicate it doesn't work

I also found this change request on file, talking about another variation on the feature.


I haven't actually tried this.
