Grabbing full image path for use with Get The Image

  • Hi there,

    I am using Advanced Custom Fields to add images to custom posts. I then want to grab the image with field name ‘product_image’ to use with Get The Image:

    <?php get_the_image( array( 'meta_key' => array( 'product_image', 'Thumbnail', 'thumbnail' ), 'size' => 'thumbnail', 'default_image' => get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/images/placeholder.jpg' ) ); ?>

    This almost works in that it successfully grabs the image ID, returning <img src="425"....

    Any tips for getting the full path?

    To get the URL from an attachment ID you can use:

     <?php wp_get_attachment_image_src( $attachment_id, $size, $icon ); ?>

    where $size (str|array) and $icon (bool) are optional.

  • Thanks! I’ve ended up using this in order to still have a fallback image using Get The Image:

    			<?php 	$attachment_id = get_field('product_image');
    				$size = "thumbnail";
    				$image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( $attachment_id, $size ); 	
    				if ( $image != 0 ) { ?>
    				<img src="<?php echo $image[0]; ?>" />
    			<?php 	} else {
    				get_the_image( array( 'size' => 'thumbnail', 'default_image' => get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/images/placeholder.jpg' ) );
    			} ?>
