[WORKSPACE] - Add Images

Now we can add text with style. Can you please allow us adding images? It will be a great enhancement for our report. Usually we show data about content or page performance and business team need to have a visual link to that figures.

The same I can do here in this post:

Let's start with a simple inclusion of <img> tag where we point to an external source for image, then you can take your time to figure out how to manage image hosting...

Hi Jen,

I'm comparing the tech of the older R&A Dashboards in Adobe Analytics being more of a frustration as opposed to the tech used in the exact forums we're using right now to converse.  The reason it was a pain was we had to HOST the image somewhere first and then paste in the URL of the image, as opposed to these forums.  For instance, within this very UI we're using, I can click a button that allows me to upload an image.  In fact, I can even paste an image from my clip board right into the body of this message and keep typing.

Didn't mean to be purposely vague in my response.  Happy to provide any additional details, as needed.  Does that help?

That does help! To boil it down, you would prefer to upload an image and have the UI (Forums in this case) store the image, rather than paste a URL to an image hosted elsewhere. Thank you for explaining that a bit more, and I would love to involve you in some research/testing calls once we get those setup. Please message me with your contact info when you get a chance.

I would be curious to hear from others on the thread about which approach is preferred. The originating idea from JarnoRossiCom​ suggested the latter approach (URL).

Hi Jen!

That's spot on!  To give it a finer point.  Another tool I use on a regular basis is the Atlassian tool, Confluence.  We use Confluence as our process and documentation for creating reports, and as you may know, Confluence operates very similarly to Forums, in that you can insert images via upload or copy/paste inline while working.  Depending on the versions you've seen, you can also quickly choose sizing "on the fly" and keep going, which means I spend a lot less time determining what I have to do with images and more productive time documenting and reporting. 

Sending the appropriate contact info shortly, and thanks!

Hi all,

I suggested you to give us the easier solution (paste the URL), just because I want to have it soon.

But for sure, the best option is to have both the solutions: UPLOAD (and hosting) or PASTE THE URL

The image should be at 100% size scale of the panel, since we can already resize the panel with mouse.

Thanks! We are discussing doing this in phases, like you described, by first allowing users to paste in a URL. If you had the ability to paste in an URL, where would you source your images from?

Hi Jen,

Here is a perfect VISUAL example from a tool I regularly use today: Confluence. 

I have one of two choices when I'm working.  I can either click the image tool to upload and then insert an image into my project.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Then, once the image is on the page, I am able to choose how I would like to treat it.  I can control its size, border, add links and some additional properties, if I want.

I can also skip Steps 1 through 4 by simply Copying and Pasting any image from my computer, which includes using tools like FastStone Capture, which is the exact productivity tool I used to capture all of the screenshots I used in this response.

Absolutely would prefer to upload an image.  Confluence is a great example.  The other one is Google Data Studio.  Super quick and you don't need to worry about finding a URL to host your picture. (Can be a pain in a big corporate)
