Sharepoint online Picture Gallery


  • Hi everybody,

    I've 2 problems with a Picture Library created on a SharePoint Online Team Site.

    1. Users with View Only permission can still download the images in the library. How can I avoid download?
    2. My library has a lot of folders that contains pictures. Can I change the cover image for these folders?

  • 1) In order to be displayed in a browser image files need to be downloaded to the local workstation.  So there is no way that you can avoid users being able to download images if you want them to be able to view the image.

    2) There is nothing available in SharePoint Online that will enable changing the cover image for a folder.  You would need to do custom programming in javascript to change the image on the client.
