Add a Picture from the Computer

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconModern SharePoint pages have two web parts for image addition, but the classic wiki page gives more options to customize how the image is displayed. In the demo below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, shows how to add a picture ‘From Computer’ to a wiki page and how to change the position of the picture.

There are three options to add a picture to a SharePoint wiki page.
  • From Computer
  • From Address
  • From SharePoint
To add a picture from the computer is the easiest way. In the following demos Peter will explain the other two ways.

These are the steps to add a picture from a computer to a SharePoint wiki page:
  1. Click on ‘Edit’ on the top right of the page. The page will open in Edit mode.
  2. Place the mouse cursor where you want to add a picture.Insert image from computer
  3. Open the INSERT tab and expand the ‘Picture’ accordion.
  4. There are three options. Select ‘From Computer’.
  5. Click on the Browse button, select a picture and click on Open.
  6. In the Upload Image dialog, select a destination library where you want to place your picture. The default choice is ‘Site Assets’.
  7. Click OK, and the picture will be displayed on the page.
In the demo Peter also shows how to:
  • Add a description to your picture.
