How To Add A Picture To SharePoint 2010

Adding a picture to SharePoint 2010 is a simple process that can enhance the visual appeal of your pages. Whether you want to insert a single image or upload multiple pictures for easy access, SharePoint provides you with the necessary tools to customize your content. In this section, we will guide you through the steps required to seamlessly integrate images into your SharePoint 2010 pages.

Additional Methods for Adding Pictures

Aside from the standard method, SharePoint 2010 offers additional options for adding pictures, including pre-uploading multiple images and bulk uploading files for easy accessibility.

If you want to pre-upload multiple images, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Gear Icon dropdown menu and select Site Contents.
  2. Click on Images to go to the Images library.
  3. Click the Upload button and select the images you want to upload. Fill in the necessary information and click Check In.
  4. Go back to the page where you want to insert the images and click Edit.
  5. Click on the Insert tab in the ribbon and then select Insert Image. Browse to the SharePoint Images library and select the image to insert.
  6. Add a title (alternate text) for the image and choose the image size and position.
  7. Save & Close and Check In the page when you are done editing.

For bulk uploading multiple images, you can follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Site Actions menu and select Site Contents.
  2. Click on Images to go to the Images library.
  3. Drag and drop the image files from your computer into the image library.
  4. Once the images finish uploading, they will be ready for use on the page.

Please note that in SharePoint versions before 2010, another method to add a picture is by using the Image Viewer Web Part. This method can be used for both wiki and web part pages. To use this method, you can follow these steps:

  1. Click on Edit on the top right of the page to enter Edit mode.
  2. Place the mouse cursor where you want to add the 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. Adjust the necessary settings.
  9. Click OK and then save the changes to the page.

By following these steps, you can successfully add a picture to SharePoint 2010 using different methods.
