I am using the Services (7.x-3.7) module to provide a REST API to our website content. However I have a problem with returning images. I am using Scald (7.x-1.1) to manage our media items. This means that when I attempt to GET a node (example.com/rest/node/25592) I get each field for the node in question nicely wrapped in JSON but for the image instead of an image path and file-name I get the Scald ID as follows:
How can a client application reference the image path from the SID? I know I can use example.com/atom/15775 but this gives me back a themed node page containing the image - it contains the menu and default theme elements so it is not trivial or efficient to retrieve the image path from the source - though it could be done with some client side parsing. What I am looking for is a means to reference the image path directly using the SID. I am trying to keep the number of API calls to a minimum. Alternatively is there some way to configure the Services module to return the image path?
