I need add a class to a image for one specific views.
I tried:

  • theme_preprocess_field() but it doesn't work
  • theme_preprocess_image() but it's for all the images
  • I tried what suggested in Override image template for field image_formatter own, but it is too complex to simply add a CSS class
  • This answer is the more accepted but I like other ways

Is it possible to override a field/image template file for a specific view?

If your view is outputting fields (& not a teaser) you can easily do it in the views UI.

  1. Edit your view
  2. Click on the image field
  3. STYLE SETTINGS > Customize field HTML > Create a CSS class
  4. Save

Now your image field should have a class:
