Reuse images

Iron Contributor

Hello guys how do you reuse the uploaded images to SharePoint I am making a SharePoint Wiki and I use sample 1.jpg then I create another wiki page so how do I reuse the 1.jpg in my newly created wiki page?

 

Aside from copy and paste is there a more better way to do that?

I had tried each one of that menu but no option here to reuse the 1.jpg file any technique you know guys regarding this question.

 

Any suggestion is welcome :)

@gmj12345 When you first time upload the picture/image from your computer, you get option like "Destination Library" where the newly uploaded image will be saved:

Image will be saved in folder like Destination Library selected > SitePagesPage Name folder. Inside this page name folder, all images uploaded from that page will be saved.

 

Next time you want to reuse the same image, select PictureFrom SharePoint. Then you will get popup like below where you can expand the library and page name folder to select the previously uploaded image:

Are you using SharePoint M365? Cant find the Picture menu ;(

@gmj12345 Yes, I am using SharePoint Online (M365). I can see the Picture option in the image you added in your original question.

If I choose From Address

Clicking the Picture under Insert Menu will just add another new picture and not reuse the previous uploaded image. :(

@gmj12345 Please read my first response carefully. First time you have to upload a image using "From Computer" option.

 

Then you can reuse it using "From SharePoint" or "From Address" options.

 

But seems like "From SharePoint" option is not available for you for some reason so you will have to use the "From Address" option.

 

On "From Address" popup, you have to use the previously added image URL in "Address" field.

 

Now, to get the previously added image URL:

  1. Check my first response to understand where the previously added image is stored in SharePoint. It will be at location like: Destination Library selected > SitePages > Page Name folder
  2. Go to the folder as mentioned in step #1. Then you have to get the direct URL of the image. Which you can get using Copy direct link option in library, full the steps mentioned here:  Uploading files in SharePoint 
  3. Use the image URL in "Address" field on "From Address" popup while adding image to wiki page.

I am using MS365 Business  Basic how about you what is your SharePoint version?

@ganeshsanap 

@gmj12345 I am using Microsoft 365 E3 developer subscription (enterprise) tenant. 


Please consider giving a Like if my post helped you in any way.

@gmj12345 I'm using a free image resizing site "Resize Buddy" to optimize images before uploading/posting to any online platform. It will reduce the issues like you are facing now. 

For M365 Basic just right click the image then choose copy image address then that's it you can now reuse the image :)
