Add Picture from Address

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 previous article Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, showed how to add a picture From Computer to a wiki page and how to change the position of the picture.

In the demo below, Peter shows how to add a picture From Address. In the next article, Peter will explain how to add a picture From SharePoint.

When you add a picture from an address, you have no control over the picture if you do not control the original site. If the picture is removed from the original site, it will no longer be shown on your SharePoint site, and if it is updated on the original site it will be updated on your site too.

To have full control over the picture, download it and use the From Computer or From SharePoint option. But this of course means that your picture will not be updated when the original picture is updated.

These are the steps to add a picture from an address to a SharePoint page:
  1. Click on Edit on the top right of the page. The page will open in Edit mode.
  2. Insert image from address Place the mouse cursor where you want to add a picture.
  3. Open the INSERT tab and expand the Picture accordion.
  4. There are three options. Select From Address.
  5. Fill the URL in the address field.
  6. Click OK, and the picture will be displayed on the page.
In this demo Peter also shows how to:
  • Resize the image.
  • Get back to the original size.
  • Copy a picture URL from a website.
