How to add a thumbnail of an attached image to a comment

Recently switched to the "new" JIRA experience in settings.  In the "old" experience, you could attach an image file to a JIRA item and then in a comment there was a drop-down from which you could choose that attached image from a list and it would add a thumbnail entry to the comment text.  The comment would then contain a clickable thumbnail to the attached image.

I can't seem to find where to do this in the new experience.  Anyone know?

Hello @David Calkins,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

On the new issue view, when uploading a file or image, it will show all types of attachments that you previously uploaded to other Jira tickets or even on Confluence pages of any Atlassian Cloud site. 

On the old editor (Wiki Markup), it was possible to view files that were previously attached to the very same ticket only, but on the new editor (Markdown) it will show files from all tickets.

This is a known issue and you can find more details on the link below:

Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the ticket.

Kind regards,

Thanks!  I've voted on that issue.

Hello @David Calkins 

When you edit a comment in the new experience, a toolbar will appear at the top of the text area. Click the Files & Images button. The image will be attached to the issue, then be placed in the comment text at the point where you inserted it:Annotation 2021-03-29 181651.png

Thanks for the reply!  This does not address what I'm referring to though.  In my case, I've already attached the image and I simply want to add a thumbnail to the already attached image in a comment.  Using the method you described triggers the file open dialog to upload a new image which isn't what I'm looking for.
