When selecting 'new Document' in the picture library, the window 'Add a picture' is showing up, where I can upload a picture. Is there a possibility to add a comment below as under a column like 'Please upload a picture, that is not bigger than..'

Is there a possibility, that I can add other properties/columns to the 'start page', e.g. 1. upload picture and then 2. title,.. similar to adding a new item to a list.

Thank you very much!

Below are the easy steps to add the text below uplaod dialog of Picture Library.

  1. Get the Page URL (like this http://SiteColURL/_layouts/Upload.aspx?List={GUID of document library}) of the Dialog of Picture Library upload document.

below is the image of upload page of shared document library but you will get the same for picture library

enter image description here

  1. Open the URL in SharePoint Designer.
  2. Edit the page in Advance Mode.
  3. Add the text/comment below to your control in design mode.
  4. Save the dialog page.

Note:- It is a common page for every Library so it will change for all in SharePoint environment.

  • Thank you for your help! As I am new to sharepoint I am not sure where to add the text/comment. Shall I open the Upload.aspx file and write the comment somewhere in the source code? What is Advance Mode/design mode?

  • You can change the code as well as design by disabling Advance mode but make sure to checkout the file first & cope the entire content to some notepad as a backup (as you mentioned that you are new). than you can make changes.

  • Do you know a good link to a description on how to change the source code as I am not that sure where to edit it? Is it possible for a beginner to adjust the forms that sharepoint creates without InfoPath?
