Add Picture in Image Viewer Web Part

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint icon In three earlier demos Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, has showed different options to add a picture to a SharePoint page using the Picture button in the SharePoint ribbon.

In the demo below Peter shows a fourth way to add a picture. This time he uses the Image Viewer Web Part. Nowadays it is not commonly used, but in SharePoint versions before 2010 it was the only way to add a picture to a SharePoint page.

These are the steps to add a picture to the Image Viewer web part in a SharePoint 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.

  3. Open the INSERT tab and click on ‘Web Part’.

  4. Under ‘Media and Content’, select ‘Image Viewer’.

  5. Click on ‘Add’ and go to the web part tool pin.

  6. Expand the web part tool pin accordion and click on ‘Edit Web Part’.

  7. Type or paste the image URL in the ‘Image Link’ field.

  8. Do the necessary settings.

  9. Click OK, and then save the changes to the page by clicking on the ‘Save’ button.

  10. The picture will be displayed on the page.

In this demo Peter is also showing how to:

  • Copy a picture URL from a SharePoint page.

  • Define the appearance of the picture.
