I need to retrieve image's url in phtml from pub/media dir, the same image that i used in a static wysiwig block retrieved with {{media url="path/to/image.jpg"}}.

I know $block->getViewFileUrl(), but it takes images from app/code or app/design.

Is there a same easy way?

Call Function in Block file,

 Class Test{
        protected $storeManager;
        public function __construct(
                \Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface $storeManager,
            ) {
                $this->storeManager = $storeManager;

        public function getMediaimg(){
            $folderName = 'cusotomimg';
            $imgname = 'abc.jpg';
            $path = $folderName . '/' . $imgname;
            return $this->storeManager->getStore()->getBaseUrl(\Magento\Framework\UrlInterface::URL_TYPE_MEDIA) . $path;

Now call inside phtml file,

   <?php echo $block->getMediaimg(); ?>

Directly using objectmanager, this is not recommended way but you can check its using directly in phtml file instead of using objectmanager you can using Block file

$om = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$storeManager = $om->get('Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface');
$folderName = 'cusotomimg';
$imgname = 'abc.jpg';
$path = $folderName . '/' . $imgname;
echo $storeManager->getStore()->getBaseUrl(\Magento\Framework\UrlInterface::URL_TYPE_MEDIA) . $path;

in block file

public function getMediaDirectoryUrl(){

       $media_dir = $this->objectManager->get('Magento\Store\Model\StoreManagerInterface')

       return $media_dir;

in phtml file
