Just started to work around with Drupal 8.

I want to add class "center-block" to the field_product_image.

<img class="img-responsive {new class}"/>

How do i do this guys?
below is the twig code

   {% if content.field_product_image| render %}
    <div class="col-sm-3">
    {{ content.field_product_image }}
    {% endif %}
    <div class="col-sm-9">
        {{ content.body }}
        {{ content.field_features }}

You can check Extra Image Field Classes module.

Normally I would say to call addClass() on the image.attributes variable in your image Twig file, but I believe images don't have a lot of template suggestions (everything goes through image.html.twig) which means that your class will be added to all images. Likely not what you're looking for...

Option one, inspect the variables in image.html.twig and see if they give you the information you need to determine when to add the new class. If so, do it in the Twig template (attributes.addClass('new-class')).

Option two, implement hook_preprocess_image in your theme's .theme file. Something like this:

function MYTHEME_preprocess_image(&$variables) {
  if (some_way_to_figure_out_if_this_is_the_right_image) {
    $variables['attributes']['class'][] = 'new-class';

Hope that helps. (Edited for better code formatting).

    Hi Mikeker thanks for all this. yes I have seen the image.html.twig file it dose not give the information I need. If there was a node_type information in the attributes it could have been easy to add this using the twig code. however the [extra image field classes ](drupal.org/project/extra_image_field_classes) module did the job. so i marked that as the answer.

    function mmboots_preprocess_image_formatter(&$variables) { $bundles = $item['item']->getFieldDefinition()->getFieldStorageDefinition()->getBundles(); $key= array_keys($bundles); $variables['image']['#attributes']['type']=$key[0]; } I saw the hook 'image_formatter' get called before the hook 'image' in the debug mode and was able to inject node_type to attributes. then i was able to call it from the image.html.twig. hook_image didn't had what i looked for. Do you know whether drupal twig got any global variables we can call in a twig file ?. like $node?
