An image type is a container of an image asset with an associated caption and alt text.


Name Type Format Description
asset object Asset The asset that is linked to from the entry
altText string The image alt text, defined in the entry
caption string The image caption, defined in the entry

Note The caption property allows instance specific text to be associated with a linked image asset.

Transformations set against the image are appended as query string parameters to the sys.uri, so that when requested the transformations are applied using the image API.

When the entry is requested without a linkDepth, the uri is not set however the transformations are still returned along with the image link.
