Understanding SharePoint's Image Gallery


This article describes SharePoint’s Image Gallery and provides some links to additional information.


The SharePoint Image Gallery is a Microsoft SharePoint web part. It allows you to share collections of images on a SharePoint web page. These collections can be chosen by a user or automatically from the SharePoint document library. They can be displayed in three different layouts

  • Grid – same aspect ratio (1:1, 16:9, or 4:3) for each image displayed in a square pattern on the page
  • Brick – images of various aspect ratios are automatically organized into a “brick” pattern on the page
  • Carousel – allows users to cycle through images using arrows on each side or provided automatic cycling with up to 5 seconds on each image

Images displayed in Virginia Tech’s SharePoint should be for business/research purposes only. Additional information can be found at
