Options to add an image to your event



To add an image to your event, you have the option to choose between:

  • Unsplash.com
  • Upload your own image
  • Use an image from other confluence pages NEW IN 3.11



Integrate Unsplash.com images

In the drop down menu, select Unsplash. The image search reflects your event's name. If you want something else, type in the word you are looking for and click Search. Select an image that fits. Once you select an image, it is cropped automatically and applied to your event.



Tip

Tip #1

The image search reflects your event's name. If your event is named "Christmas party", the search will display fitting images. Use the search bar above the images to refine your search (for example when you don't want to see any Christmas themed images, but only images of Santa Clause).


Tip #2

The images you see are not as perfect as they could be? Click the arrow button underneath the search bar. New images will load. Repeat until you find the perfect image for your event.


Upload your own image

You can upload your own cover image for your event.

In the drop down menu, select Upload. Select the file you wish to upload. The image will load. 

Now, crop the image and decide on the image format. Select the image section you want to be displayed as the event image. Click on the Save button.



You can reposition the cropping tool anytime. Click on Apply again to apply the new image section as a cover image.

Make sure your image is at least 450 x 170 px


Use an image from other Confluence Pages

NEW IN 3.11

You can also use an image from other confluence pages.

In the event creation wizard, select Search in the Drop down menu. Type in the name of the confluence page you want to use. Select the image you want and click on Choose.

Now, crop the image and decide on the image format. Select the image section you want to be displayed as the event image. Click on the Save button.



Set event image format

You can choose whether your event image should be displayed in the header area of the event card only (image on top) or fill the whole background (background image). Simply switch the toggle that sits below image editing tools to set your preferred image format:






Your selected image format will be reflected in the live preview to give you a better idea of how your final event will look like for your colleagues.

It is not possible to change image format when editing an event at a later time. You will need to re-upload the event image from your computer or re-select it by searching an image database that's connected to your intranet (e.g., Unsplash.com).


Activate the Unsplash.com functionality

Navigate to Confluence administration > Linchpin Events > Configuration > Event images.

Click on the slider next to "unsplash.com". A window with a disclaimer will open.

Read the disclaimer and activate both checkboxes. Then, click on the OK button.
