Adding images to Lists

  Asked By: Thaddeus    Date: Apr 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1686

i just want an user to add an image to a list. It easy, but when we
let a user to add an image after creating a picture datatype, it always
asks for the link which should be from the picture library. My question
is, we cant let user to add pics to picture library, so is there a way
to solve this like a browse button kinda thing

picture  column doesn't require that the user  keep the pictures in a
Picture Library. It does require a protocol and domain name in a URL
pointing to an image. So, your images  can be anywhere provided they are
accessible via an HTTP URL.

I wish it supported root relative references but it doesn't.

So the easiest place would be the images  folder on the web site?

If the image  is placed in a location not available to the user  because it is not
published to an extranet/internet, is the user's browser retrieving it or is the
web site retrieving it?

I think the former which would result in a picture  not found, right?

You could exlude a managed path of /images from SharePoint Central
Admin -> Virtual server settings. Create a virtual directory on each
web-front end IIS server and put your images  there. That will give
you a place in the same namespace to put images, like
http://yourportal.com/images. This, by default, should use the same
authentication mechanism as your SPS/WSS implementation.

A big thanx to all the guys who responded. ok let me try with ur
instructions.Then again when pulling out the image  to the list
, how do we specify?

Answer #5    Answered By: Vance Hardin     Answered On: Apr 30

I've written a web part that allows a user  to browse  their local drives for an image  and then uploads the selected image to a picture  library that is specified by the administrator. If this would be helpful in your solution, contact me directly.
