Atlassian Community Hero Image Collage

Can anyone please provide tips or help embedding a photo within a trello card?

I've tried copying image url from several sources -- desktop, google photo drive, and either the image shows up for me and not everyone else, or image won't show up at all. This is for embedding an image IN the card, not an attachment. Thanks!

Hi Monica!

The easiest way to get an image to show inside the card description is to use the Markdown embed method. Type

![Alt text](http://image.url/goes/here.jpg)

Where you put a direct web link to the image inside the parenthesis. The Alt text is optional but helps if someone on your team uses a screen reader. You'll know the link is the right kind if it ends with an image file extension, such as .jpg, .png, .gif, etc.

Hope this helps!

I've tried Dropbox and Google Drive and neither will create a link that ends with the file name. What options are available that will allow me to embed the image in the card?
