SharePoint List: Add image

Copper Contributor

Is there any way to configure the "Add Image" column to pull from a SharePoint document library instead of the local file directories?

Unfortunately, No. You cannot change this behavior of SharePoint image columns.

You can try this workaround:

  1. Add images to SharePoint document library
  2. Create Hyperlink or Picture column in your SharePoint list - set it to show as picture/image from column settings
  3. While adding list items, Copy direct link of image files from document library and use it in hyperlink or picture column in your list

You can also create a simple hyperlink column in the SharePoint list and format it using JSON formatting to show it as image.
