    Render media in Umbraco 8

    What is the best way to render media (image) in a template using Umbraco 8? I can't get it to work and the documentation doesn't say much about it for version 8. At the moment I've tried:

    When trying to get the URL of that image I get an error. I've tried getting the URL using: nieuwsItem.Value("artikelAfbeelding").Url; which returns an error. I presume this has to do with the new ModelBuilder in Umbraco 8, but I can't figure it out.

    Is there any documentation that specifies how this should be done?

    I've found the solution for my problem. I forgot to cast the value as an IPublishedContent item:

    var image = nieuwsItem.Value<IPublishedContent>("artikelAfbeelding");

    After that I can call the URL like so:


    Maybe this is useful to somebody someday!
