    This would be amazing - also having the ability to collapse by default (not a Slack option) would be pretty awesome!

    Isn't this just doing <www.google.com> ? It hides the "popout" screen.

    I use discord as one of my main chat clients and it's always visible on my screen. It would be really nice to have this functionality, especially on videos and gifs that loop. It's very distracting to have a looping video on the screen that I can't stop.

    This has been my most missed feature when migrating from Slack to Discord

    This is not the same as pasting in like <https://google.com>  versus https://google.com 
    the <link> one is just disabling the preview on that image (maybe "code" or something? not sure) 

    but it still expands any generic image/video that is pasted in, even with preview. (assuming the channel allows it) 

    Discord

     

    Versus Slack. Where it allows you to paste in a link/image, and depending on your settings it may auto-expand the preview, or leave it collapsed. 
    But whichever way it comes in at first, there is an arrow to expand/collapse it. and commands /expand and /collapse let you change all the images/previews at once .

    My group is evaluating moving from Slack to Discord, and the inability to collapse gifs/pictures/etc is a pretty major disadvantage

    +1 Amazing that this isn't already a feature.

    In most browsers you can right click on the preview, "Inspect" and then delete an appropriate element. This might help some people in the meantime, but it should definitely be an actual implemented option and not a dumb hack like this.

    Chiming in to add a +1 here. I dunno if this is the right place to request new features, but collapsing media would be great to have.

    I just went looking for this feature, but stumbled upon this thread. Would love to have this added.

    Being a part of a big group that has a bunch of great folks is wonderful, but there are always a few who don't seem to think outside thier own situations and post content that is either NSFW or inappropriate for children. While my situation probably shouldn't impede others, I would like a bit more control as to what is directly shown onscreen. Being able to collapse images and or comments would be a very welcome feature.

    This really is a far more important feature than most of the stuff I've seen added lately.

    I'm mostly annoyed that I can't collapse an image coupled with the only way I can delete the message is by deleting it for everyone is just plain garbage...

    I really hope this gets some attention... I'm surprised this is not a feature already.
