On publishing pages, you can insert pictures from your computer, then it asks you the destination folder where you want to put them

In my case it shows a Document Library, site assets and Image library.

Is there anyway that the Image library is the default? and that the user does not have to select?

  • are you using custom master page? – Aveenav Mar 28 '14 at 18:14

Using a JavaScript/Jquery approach:

Add the following CSS to your custom css file.

tr[id$='SelectListSection']{display: none;}

In your custom JS file add:

$(document).ready(function () {

function autoSelectDestinationLibrary() {
 if (document.URL.toLowerCase().indexOf('upload.aspx') != -1) {
    var ddDestLib = $("select[id$='AvailableDocLibs']");
    if (ddDestLib.length > 0) {
        $("select[id$='AvailableDocLibs'] option:contains('Images')").prop('selected', true);

If you're on SP2013 on-prem you can:

  • create your own 'upload.aspx' and add the necessary logic.
  • Use customActions to tie it to particular list/library/content type.
