I am well versed in SharePoint and in the past I've used "Picture Libraries" as they are able to show thumbnails for images. Picture Libraries, though, don't seem to be well supported in SharePoint and not at all in Teams. Any guidance on how to display a list of images with their thumbnails, within Teams?

Use the website tab and point it at a sharepoint library where you are using the tile view. it will be a lttle awkward with authentication for now, but next year there will be a dedicated SharePoint page tab, where you could have your library as a webpart.

Thanks. I think that'll work, although it's ugly to have a web view within Teams.

Hi,
I agree with Daniel here.
It would be much better to have a proper "Photos" app that would directly display thumbnails of pictures, which would be stored and manageable in the team SharePoint.
@microsoft dvpt team: is it somehow planned to be released in the foreseeable future?

Was there ever an update here? Is adding the "website" teams app still the recommended approach?

Yep, still..new teams/ SharePoint features coming soon though

Any news regarding an image app for Teams based an a picture library?

When is soon? This year (2019)?

Oh, no sorry! haven’t heard anything about a picture viewer

I'm looking forward for this Integration too.

Kinda sad that such Picture Library feature is yet to be bring over to Team since 2017.

 

Any work around to preview the Picture Library in Team?
