    Have a project converted from 3.7 to 6.3.5000. Is it possible to convert document libraries to image libraries? Problem is there are many libraries with images, and the migration converts all libraries to document. This didn't break the existing pages using the images, but now having issues reusing the existing libraries.

    Hi Richard,

    Could you please provide more information about what type of libraries and files have been converted to Documents library during the migration process as this is not the default behaviour of the Build-in migration module?

    From other hand, in order to link an image to a content you can get this image from Image Library or browse to it directly. Such functionality to change Documents library to Image library is not supported. Furthermore you can not link Image from Document library to Image field.
