resizing images in the comment section "New Jira"

After the new Jira update ( Smileys on comments being one of them) Images are uploaded full size into the comment section of a ticket. In the previous Jira format - Images were set to a small size when uploaded within comments, then if you double clicked you were able to enlarge the image. 

Is there a way to set images within comments to the original smaller size?

Hi Christopher,

The issue that you are facing was reported as a bug. Currently, there is no workaround but using the old view.
Please, click on vote and watch to receive updates about the bug.


Any ETA for this feature to be released in "New Jira"? 

Hi Sergej,

We don't publish ETA or roadmaps for bugs and features.
Once they start working to fix it, they will change the status or add a comment, that's why it's important to watch the bug.
Feel free to add a comment on the bug ticket for our dev team to check.


This is brutal.  It has been months.  Breaks our workflow.  You must be doing this to push users to more expensive Jira server or something.  Why make everything WYSIWYG and remove text mode which would let us quickly add the thumbnail modifier or something?

+1 Really annoying to everybody – will have to force everyone on the team to use the old view because the comment sections all have become unreadable and every single alert email is a pain now.

Let's please fix this. width, height, allignement...

We are using the next-gen Jira project and there is no workaround for this one since we can't use the old view for next-gen projects.
