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?

    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

    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.
