Instant image preview

Hello! This is my first post! I really enjoy developing with Netlify CMS :slight_smile:

I have a question though. During blog post creation I would like to be able to add an image and immediately see it inside preview. In my current setup that does not work since the image is uploaded to the static folder only when the post is published, I’m storing the images in the repo, just to make it obvious.

Is there a method to achieve immediate preview? Some config? Or should I just rip the image widget apart and add some js magic to make it work?

Best regards, JAM FTW

Hey @JanChodorowski, welcome to the forum :tada:
As far as I know, there is currently no way to preview images. You may want to chime in on this thread, or check out other resources mentioned there:

In the meantime, this repo may be of interest to you if you’re thinking about building something and/or if you’re already using Hugo with Netlify CMS:

Oops, just seeing that you tagged this post gatsby so scratch that last repo suggestion :slight_smile:

But one more thought: custom previews may be a way to accomplish what you want?
