Add Pictures Using Picture Library Slideshow Web Part

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconIn the demos below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, explains how you can use the Picture library to store images.

The benefit of using a Picture library is that you by default get three different views in the library.
  • The Thumbnails view, which shows thumbnails of all pictures.
  • The Slides view, where you can move between different pictures.
  • The All Pictures view, which looks like a standard library list.
Peter also shows two examples on how you can add pictures from a Picture library to a classic SharePoint page using a web part called Picture Library Slideshow. Note that the Picture library must be in the same site as the page for this to work!
