    Hi I am trying to get a site to work after having lost and recreated some of the source files, using the deployed site files. I have everything working on my local dev machine except for one thing: any image which is a media picker property does not display.

    typically these are using

     @Umbraco.Media(CurrentPage.mainImage).GetCropUrl("LargeSquare")
    

    and I know this should work, as it does on the deployed site, but when I inspect the html the src url for the image is blank. This also happens if I omit the crop part of the url

    I've tried rebuilding the indexes, publishing some items, but nothing has worked yet. I'm not sure where to look for the source of the problem.

    Hi Jonny

    Try to check what is in "CurrentPage.mainImage" property? Is there a valid media id?

    Thanks,

    Alex

    yes there is a valid media id

    also If I construct the url manually using the Id the image gets served.

    the issue is just that @Umbraco.Media is not able to construct the url

    Hi Jonny

    Try this code:

    var mediaItem = Umbraco.TypedMedia(Umbraco.AssignedContentItem.GetPropertyValue<int>("mainImage"));
    
    var imageUrl = mediaItem.GetCropUrl("LargeSquare");
    

    Also check that crop alias is exactly "LargeSquare", it's camel sensitive, so it is "largeSquare" will not work

    Thanks,

    Alex
