    Accessing media inside of media

    I am having difficulty accessing media inside of media. Here is the partial view that works

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Macros.PartialViewMacroPage
    
    @{ var mediaId = Model.MacroParameters["mediaId"]; }
    @if (mediaId != null)
    {
    
        var media = Umbraco.Media(mediaId);
        var selection = media.Children("HomePageTile");
    
        if (selection.Any())
        { 
            <div class="home-page feed packed" id="feed">
                @{
                    foreach (var item in selection)
                    {
                        var test = "";
                        var backgroundColor = "transparent";
                        var linkTarget = "self";
                        var isALink = false;
    
    
                        if (item.backgroundColor != null) {
                            backgroundColor = item.backgroundColor;
                        }
    
                        if (item.linkType == "External Link") {
                            linkTarget = "blank";
                        }
    
                        if (item.linkType == "External Link" || item.linkType == "Internal Link") {
                            isALink = true;
                        }
    
                        <div style="background-color: @backgroundColor;" class="grid-cell [email protected] [email protected] hide-if-small-screen-0">
    
                            @if (isALink) {
                                <a target="[email protected]" href="@item.linkUrl">
                                    <img class="" src="@item.image" alt="" title="">
                                 </a>
                            } else {
                                <img class="" src="@item.image" alt="" title="">
                            }
    
                            @Html.Raw(item.html)
                        </div>
                    }
                }
            </div>
        }
    }
    

    And if I add var image = Umbraco.Media(item.image); it breaks.

    @inherits Umbraco.Web.Macros.PartialViewMacroPage
    
    @{ var mediaId = Model.MacroParameters["mediaId"]; }
    @if (mediaId != null)
    {
    
        var media = Umbraco.Media(mediaId);
        var selection = media.Children("HomePageTile");
    
        if (selection.Any())
        { 
            <div class="home-page feed packed" id="feed">
                @{
                    foreach (var item in selection)
                    {
                        var test = "";
                        var backgroundColor = "transparent";
                        var linkTarget = "self";
                        var isALink = false;
                        var image = Umbraco.Media(item.image);
    
                        if (item.backgroundColor != null) {
                            backgroundColor = item.backgroundColor;
                        }
    
                        if (item.linkType == "External Link") {
                            linkTarget = "blank";
                        }
    
                        if (item.linkType == "External Link" || item.linkType == "Internal Link") {
                            isALink = true;
                        }
    
                        <div style="background-color: @backgroundColor;" class="grid-cell [email protected] [email protected] hide-if-small-screen-0">
    
                            @if (isALink) {
                                <a target="[email protected]" href="@item.linkUrl">
                                    <img class="" src="@item.image" alt="" title="">
                                 </a>
                            } else {
                                <img class="" src="@item.image" alt="" title="">
                            }
    
                            @Html.Raw(item.html)
                        </div>
                    }
                }
            </div>
        }
    }

    What kind of property is item.image? Umbraco.Media() is trying to query for another node.

    If you want to get child media items of item, you should be able to just do item.Children.

    Have you check what type it's returning? If you have Property Value Converters installed it might be already be returning an IPublishedContent.

    Also, you should probably check if the property has a value before you try to use it. I don't work with the dynamic syntax often, but it may be throwing an error if the property is empty.

    Have you looked at https://our.umbraco.org/Documentation/Getting-Started/Backoffice/Property-Editors/Built-in-Property-Editors/Media-Picker
