Adding Images from a Picture Library to a Web Page

In Chapter 8, you learned how to add a Web Part to a Web Part page. Image Web Parts are added to Web Part pages using that process and then linked to images in the Picture Library. There are other methods of adding images, as described in the following section.

Adding an Image with the Page Image Field Control

If you are working on a page containing a Page Image field control, you can use it to add an image to that page.

  1. On the page where you want to add the image, click Site Actions and select Edit Page to make the Page Image field control visible.

  2. In the Page Image field control, click Edit Picture to open the Edit Image Properties Web Page dialog box, as in Figure 13-14.

  3. In the General section, click the Browse button next to the Selected Image field.

  4. After the Image Library opens in a separate window, select the desired image and click OK. This will cause the image library window to close and populate the Selected Image field with the URL of the chosen picture. (See Figure 13-15.)

  5. Set the layout properties to what you want, and click OK to add the image.

  6. If this is a top-level site, you may have to click Publish to exit Edit Mode.

As you can see in Figure 13-16, the new image is now present on the page.
