    How Do I Delete My Account?

    Save an image and then get its path?

    Hi Umbraco Developers!

    I've successfully saved an image through the Services.MediaServices-API. I've also successfully saved an image cropper value to a page (if I have the path/url to the image). What I can't figure out is how to get the newly saved image's URL?

    I've tried several things, like calling Services.MediaServices.GetById(XXXX).Path and also some variants with .umbracoFile - nothing works.

    Any pro out there who can shed some light ?

    once you have saved a media item and want to present it to the front end, then using the UmbracoHelper should work, (so in a partial or macro)

    var media = Umbraco.TypedMedia(xxx) 
    var imgPath = media.GetPropertyValue("umbracoFile") 

    should return the virtual path (like "/media/1092/image.gif")

    however if you want to say in the back office with the services, you can access it via GetValue so

    var item = Services.MediaService.GetById(xxx);
    var filePath = item.GetValue<string>("umbracoFile");

    this will still be the virtual path, so you might need to map it. in the umbraco back office IOHelper can do that.

    string fullpath = IOHelper.MapPath(string.Format("~{0}", filePath));

    *All of the above assumes you are not using the image cropper, - as that stores JSON in the umbracoFile property.
