Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage

Show images on cards Edited

Hello there,

I was wondering how I can enable the feature to show an attached image on a card. I've read there is a kind of a useless preview function that only shows a small preview "stripe" of the attachment (via Board settings > card layout > show images), but I'm actually looking for a valid way to show it like many other competitor products. I've read on some other Atlassian site about it that actually says: "A picture tells a thousand words. And agility boards have just released their latest feature: cover images on issues – so now your board can tell a story at first glance." E.g. when hovering with the mouse of an attachment it shows the "show on card" option, but I can't find where to enable it.

Any help is appreciated.

I de-spammed this post.

At this point you cannot place images on board cards. I have seen a presentation for Next-gen, I believe, that would indicate this is coming to NG.

BTW, where did you read about the "preview function"? Link?

Posted as a suggestion by a community leader, not an official site though.


Sorry to hear tough about the cards. What is Next-Gen and when would this be offered?

thanks for sharing. Chrome might be an interesting solution but I don't use Chrome. My experience w/ it is less than ideal performance-wise. I was not familar w/ the the Images field that Tarun spoke about but gave it a try and agree it isn't very useful. While you can mouse-over the image and the full image pops up (firefox) the images appear blurry and generally non-legible for me.
