If tabular view option is not available from UI. You can try setting it using Power Shell. Following is the sample code:

$spWeb = Get-SPWeb 'siteUrl'
$spList = $spWeb.Lists['ListName']
$spView = $spList.Views["View_Name"]
$spView.TabularView = $true

    I tried your given code , it fetches view but after that it gives error. ( Given Below ) Property TabularView cannot be found on this object; make sure it exists and is settable. Property Not found. Commented Nov 6, 2014 at 12:14
  • Normally it should be available. Perhaps the view is corrupt. Did you try checking tabular view on any other test list in your site? Commented Nov 6, 2014 at 12:43
  • Yes This option is available in other lists and document library but not showing in picture library. else is all good. i also create a new view but this option is not showing. i also created a new Picture library this option is not showing in new picture library too.
