Display images from image library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I am trying to display staff photos along with their designation and department from an image library, can anyone please suggest what would be the best way to do this?

    'All Pictures view' would have worked for me if I could set default to 'Filmstrip'.

    - It would be nice if I can group the photos by offices - I already have a column in the library for that.

    I am using MOSS 2007 and would prefer not installing any 3rd party add-ons.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,

    Daisy

  • Here is how I solved my situation:
    - Created new view from the image library
    - Checked the necessary fields I wanted to display
    - Selected sort field
    - Selected Style 'Basic Table'
    - Grouped by 'office' field

    This is exactly what I wanted...at the end solution was very simple. :)

  • Hi Daisy99,

    I think you can do this with an OTB Content Query Web Part where you group by offices. You can then apply a custom XSL style sheet which will use the URL to the pictures to show them along with the other information you want, coming from that same source list.
    Keep in mind though that OTB only a couple of standard columns will be returned. To get access to the other ones, learn more about the CommonViewFields property of the Content Query Web Part.

    Greets,

  • I would have to agree with Frank, the Content Query Web Part is the way to go. 

    Here's a link to a few resources for ya:  http://sharepointy2010.blogspot.com/2009/10/content-query-web-part-links.html   .
