In sharepoint 2010, when I made a picture library I had this option:

enter image description here

But in SharePoint 2013, I don't seem to have this option, how can I get to it?



Slide libraries have been deprecated in SharePoint 2013.

Use this alternate way to get the slide libraries working in SP 2013 http://techtrainingnotes.blogspot.com/2012/11/finding-missing-sharepoint-2013-slide.html

The Slide Library is not listed as an "App" or displayed in the old Create.aspx page (_layouts/create.aspx). But… you can still get it with a direct URL. I would not depend on it being there forever as the Slide Library is officially not in 2013, but for now you can create one.

The direct URL to create the old Slide Library: http://yourserver/sites/yoursite/_layouts/15/slnew.aspx?FeatureId={0be49fe9-9bc9-409d-abf9-702753bd878d}&ListTemplate=2100

  • This creates a new app which probably works, but what if I have an existing picture library from a 2010 environment that was migrated. Is there a way to get the slide show view for that to work? – omega Dec 16 '16 at 21:08
  • Correct in the case of slide libraries which are migrated from 2010 will not work in 2013 and currently there is no alternate available as per my knowledge. – Noman Farooqi Dec 16 '16 at 21:10
