I already know I can get an url for field of node this way:

$src = file_create_url($node->get('name_of_image_field')->entity->uri->value);

The problem is, my field name_of_image_field has multiple images. How to access them all?


You can try this code:

$img_urls = array();
foreach ($node->field_image as $item) {
  if ($item->entity) {
    $img_urls[] = $item->entity->url();

Then all field_image image urls available in $img_urls variable.

  • Maybe you should remove the kint() function, since it requires devel, or make a note about that in your answer.

  • The kint line should be $image_urls[] = $item->entity->url(); than he can do another foreach ($image_urls as $key => $url) {... to get the individual urls.

    Note: method url() have use function file_create_url(). don't use again.

  • Thank you. That's exactly what I needed. Also up-voted Jaypan answer because I didn't know which one was first.

$srcs = array();
// Loop through the Languages
foreach ($node->field_image as $items) {
  // Loop through each item in each language
  foreach($items as $item) {
    if ($item->entity) {
      // Set the path as the key, to prevent duplicates
      $srcs[$item->entity->url()] = $item->entity->url();

$srcs will contain an array web-accessible URLs for every image attached to every language of the node.

    I don't think is good code. Do do you try see code in method url(). public function url($rel = 'canonical', $options = array()) { return file_create_url($this->getFileUri()); }. file_create_url call 4 time in one statements. Very bad.

  • You're correct, I've edited it accordingly.

Maybe you could use:

$delta = 0;
$file_item_list = $node->field_image;

if ($file_item_list && $file_item_list->offsetExists($delta)) {
$image_url = file_create_url($file_item_list->offsetGet($delta)->get('entity')->getValue()->getFileUri());
