I’ve had this issue randomly at multiple times throughout multiple sites (just happened again — why I’m here), and it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with conflicting plugins or queries. I have always been able to resolve it by switching the output option to “ID”, publishing, then switching it back to “Array” and publishing again. In my case, these were fresh fields, and not saved as another field type prior to being an image field.
