I have a requirement to add a thumbnail image column into an existing document library on my SharePoint 2010 site.
Thumbnail images for each document are uploaded to the images document library. When a new document gets added to the main document library on the site, I would like the user to be able to select an image from the image document library, and this will be displayed on the site.
I have tried using a “hyperlink or picture” column, and all works fine and the image renders correctly, but there is no image picker (this makes it difficult for users to use). If I add a “publishing image” column instead, it provides the picker, but the I don’t see the image on site, instead I get the html markup for the image tag rendered to the screen.
Is there any way to get an image picker control attached to the hyperlink or picture column, or get the publishing image column to render correctly.
I don’t have the availability to do anything in Visual Studio, but do have SharePoint Designer.
