I cant find the picture library add-in for a modern communication site. Is there any feature i need to enable?


Few list templates are not available in communication site template. You can enable 'Team Collaboration Lists' in site features to get the picture library templates installed. Navigate to the https://yoursite/_layouts/15/ManageFeatures.aspx and activate the the feature.
