<h2>Displaying Pictures from a Library Web Part Overview</h2>

An essential part of collaboration is to be able to exchange pictures. Below, see a picture library with thumbnails. When the user clicks on an image it opens up in animated fashion to its full size.

Why did we build it?

While there is a way to display pictures from a SharePoint picture library, it is cumbersome and the user interface is not inviting. We are all now used to seeing pictures in a format like what’s available on Facebook. Our web part uses the same Light Box technology to display pictures while providing a fun and very intuitive experience for the user.


1. Provides images from a picture list or folder.

2. Uses Light Box to show the previous and next images in a slideshow.

3. Shows pictures in a matrix where the number of rows and columns can be configured.

4. Thumbnail size can be configured.

5. Shows title and description information.
