I seem to be running into a wall when trying to embed an image into a card. I've tried Dropbox and Google Drive. They both create sharable links but neither create a link that ends with the file name (.png, .jpg, etc...) as is what is apparently needed to make this work. What options are available that will allow me to embed the image in the card? I appreciate any help!
![Alt text](/path/to/img.jpg) <-- this is the syntax I use, but the shareable links don't end in the filename.
@Sean M the image needs to be attached to the card, rather than attaching a link to the image in Drive/Dropbox:
Brilliant! Thank you, Iain. I get it now!
So, for anyone who is unclear as to how this works (as I was), here's how to embed the image in the card description:
Can I just add to this, that you can use the same syntax to insert gifs into the card description, and they look really cool!!
I use giphy.com, but any gif that has the right extension will work (and look awesome!).
Find the gif you want, open it in giphy, click on 'Copy link' and copy & paste the GIF link - that'll make it move in the card's description! (Remember that you have to click 'save' on the description to close the editing part down, you won't see it embed until you've done that!
Just thought I'd add that!
I had been using this technique for some time, but now it apparently fails to load the images once saved, or at least for me (I am using Trello in the browser -- both in Chrome and in Firefox)
I don't know if maybe it is because of some new release, I just wanted to let you guys know, and maybe try to solve it. I use this quite a lot and I think it would be awesome if it worked again.
Okay I found the problem myself haha
The images I was uploading to Trello and trying to embed in a card had in their names some kind of round brackets -- ( or ). Like ---> ![Alt Text](path/to/imagewithbrackets(1).jpg)
The link of the picture I was trying to embed had some round brackets, and I guess this was messing with the way Trello verifies its link and embeds it --> the ![Alt text](/path/to/image.jpg) formula.
I don't know if I explained clearly. Anyway, just to let you guys know, if anyone had this problem, just change the name of the file, with no round brackets this time, upload the image to the trello card again and then you can embed it with no further problem.
Hi @Sean M ,
Welcome to the community!
Basically as per as Trello features & functionality you can't add images in the description or in comments under any card of any Trello board!
They will always gonna show something like this
- A way that works to, is to attach your photo to the card.
- Then open the photo on the card, when the picture come up on the screen, click on the link at the bottom "open in new tab".
- Then copy the Trello address in the URL bar of the browser.
- Paste this into ![text](paste Trello URL bar address)
Bingo!! You have a great photo in your description
