Link cards contain three sections:

  • A preview image or media item

  • A URL/clickable link

  • A description of the card

Preview Thumbnail

The preview thumbnail is an image or media file retrieved from the URL you added to your card.

Show or hide the preview thumbnail by clicking your link card once to select it, and then clicking on the "Image" button in the left-side toolbar

Replace a thumbnail image with a custom image of your own by dragging your custom image overtop of the thumbnail and holding it in place until you see a black border appear around the link card's edge.

Now, drop the card, and your new thumbnail will be applied:

Link Description

Just like the preview thumbnail, the link description can be turned on or off by clicking the link card once to select it, and clicking on the Description button in the left-side toolbar.

You can also update the description by double clicking on it to enable the editing mode.
