How can I hyperlink images in a carousel web part in Modern Sharepoint?

I have added a series of images in a carousel on Modern Sharepoint to create a header for an intranet page. But I can't hyperlink the images. Classic Sharepoint allows me to hyperlink carousel images, but I am now using Modern Sharepoint online. How can I do this?

I Can you please tell me the pixel size of images that can fit in the quick link filmstrip? I added one image and it was too large and didn't fit the size of the box.

You can see below the image on the left is cut off while the image on the right is full size. The image on the left was originally 1200x675.


What about an image that is 400 x 240? will that be completely visible in the box.

Hello @SusanHassell-4960 ,

Currently, the Image Gallery web part does not support enhance the images with hyperlinks. Using it, we can only display images on the page.


The Image web part allows users to add hyperlinks, but we can display one image with link with one Image web part.


Therefore, you can use the Quick Links web part. You can choice custom image for each link. However, it does not have Carousel layout.

Please following steps:

1.Add a Quick links web part

2.Click " + Add links " to upload image


3.On the Quick links panel, click "Change" button.


4.Then, click "From a link" and entry a link to a site, page, document, list, library (https:// or http://) or email address (mailto:)


5.Go back the Quick links panel, under the "Thumbnail", select "Custome image" option and click "Change" button to select the previously uploaded image


6.Of cource, you can click "Edit Web Part". On the Layout Options, you can select layout that you like. In my test, I selected Filmstrip Layout.

Hi @SusanHassell-4960 ,

The best image size should be 379px x 213px. This you can get it from the default link comes with Quick Links web part.

Create your images to render perfect for different aspect ratios.

The natural size is in the below image is recommended.

Thank you so much. Microsoft should offer linkable images on the highlighted content web part, but until then, this is the workaround I have been looking for.
