I am using SharePoint Online Picture library, where images are being displayed in tiles view.

I noticed that thumbnail image contains Filename + Modified date on the tiles as per below screenshot.

Is it possible to show Title of the image + Modified date on the Tiles ?

I tried formatting the JSON for entire row in Modern view, able to get the Title of the column, but the tile becomes non-clickable.

Based on below screenshot, title MyImage should be shown in place of 20170915_095235.jpg

For modern experience in SharePoint Online, I assume using JSON formatting will be a good way to change the text displayed on the thumbnail. Per my test, after applying still I can click on the thumbnail and open it in a new tab.

                  "attributes": {

                  "txtContent": "[$Title]"
                },
                {
                  "elmType": "div",
                  "style": {

                  },
                  "txtContent": "[$Modified]"
                }
              ]
            }
          ]
        }
      ]
    }
  }
}

I edited a bit from the json code from a blog and worked. Reference:https://devscopeninjas.azurewebsites.net/2019/12/19/tiles-view-formatting-thumbnail-along-with-description-and-keywords/

  • Hi @Jerry_MSFT, Is it possible to get the same folder image, as we get in modern view. Folder image at the parent level and at child level file image ? – KoolRaj Oct 14 '20 at 10:36
  • @KoolRaj,I updated with a new json, however it is faraway from a perfect one. It simple check if the new item has an extension, if not I will assume it to be a folder. Have a try with it and would be better to get some experts on JSON formatting. – Jerry_MSFT Oct 15 '20 at 2:21
