File attachments on issues and pull requests

When you open issue or update a pull request, you can use issue attachments to upload images of proposed features or screenshots of bugs.

Warning: If you add an image to a pull request or issue comment, anyone can view the anonymized image URL without authentication, even if the pull request is in a private repository, or if private mode is enabled. To keep sensitive images private, serve them from a private network or server that requires authentication.

To attach a file to an issue or pull request conversation, drag and drop it into the comment box. Alternatively, you can click the bar at the bottom of the comment box to browse, select, and add a file from your computer.
