I'm writing a script to add nodes programmatically, and I don't know the proper way to add/attach image. Actually I'm not that familiar with Drupal.

Here are the (sample) image objects I found while print_ring the existing $node I'm using:

field_image: Array ( [und] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [fxid] => 3089 [alt] => [title] => [width] => 95 [height] => 126 [uid] => 249 [filename] => helloworld.jpg [uri] => public://helloworld.jpg [filemime] => image/jpeg [filesize] => 3694 [status] => 1 [timestamp] => 1346748001 [type] => image [media_title] => Array ( ) [media_description] => Array ( ) [field_tags] => Array ( ) [field_license] => Array ( [und] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [value] => nothing ) ) ) [metatags] => Array ( ) [rdf_mapping] => Array ( ) ) ) )

The next one I found is the following.

field_temp_image: Array ( [und] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [value] => http://www.example.com/sample-path/helloworld.jpg [format] => [safe_value] => http://www.example.com/sample-path/helloworld.jpg ) ) ) `

How should I add an image to that node in that way?

Let suppose your image fields in field_body_images ,

first load your node by node_load and record your image in file tables and add it to your node image field I hope this sample help you to achieve :

$n=  node_load($nid);
$file = new stdClass();      
$file->filename =$file_name;
$file->filemime =file_get_mimetype($localimagepath.$file_name);
$file->filesize = @filesize(file_create_path($localimagepath.$file_name));
$file->uid = $user->uid;
$file->status = 1;
$file->timestamp = time();
$file->list=1;
$file->data=array('alt'=>'','title'=>$n->title);
drupal_write_record('files', $file);
$record->fid=$file->fid;
$n->field_body_images[]=(array)$file;
node_save($n);
  • There's some code to demonstrate this in devel_generate: drupalcontrib.org/api/drupal/… Devel_generate of course generates dummy content for Drupal sites, including images. It's part of the Devel package: drupal.org/project/devel – paul-m Jan 1 '13 at 18:31
  • Do not forget to add file_usage_add($file, 'file', 'node', $n->nid); in the end to prevent the file from accidental deletion. – Neograph734 Dec 13 '15 at 11:24
  • @Neograph734 it will add when node_save getting triggered. – Yusef Mohamadi Dec 13 '15 at 13:12
  • @Neograph734 you're welcome ;). tnx for your attention – Yusef Mohamadi Dec 13 '15 at 13:14

May be not exactly what you need, but why not just add a reference to an image in a field, like your example 2 suggests ? And then in content template file render that field as an image.

In node creation stream:

$node->field_image['und'][0]['value'] = "/path_to_image/image.jpg";

In content type:

<?php
global $base_url;
$image_source_link=$base_url . $node->field_image['und'][0]['value'];
?>
<img src="<?php print($image_source_link); ?>" />
