I have a custom block, which extends from \Magento\Catalog\Block\Product\View\AbstractView. Within this block I would like to retrieve the base image. I've tried in this way

$this->getImage($this->getProduct(), 'product_page_image_small');

but what I get is the thumbnail instead of the base image. Should I extend from some other class?

If you change your argument to 'product_page_main_image' it should give you main image.

$this->getImage($this->getProduct(), 'product_page_main_image');
  • good, it works! How can I get the image url without resizing?

  • To understand these sizes have a look at view.xml file which defines all of these image sizes. It should be located under your custom theme/etc if not then you can copy it from luma/etc (theme). To get the Image url from your block you can use something like: $block->getUrl('pub/media/catalog').'product'.$_product->getImage();

  • Yes, I knew it. I was wondering what is the best way to get the original file URL.

You have to change your argument in your phtml file,

1. product_page_image_medium
2. product_page_main_image

Above both argument gives you main image of product and using above argument your image should display like,



$this->getImage($this->getProduct(), 'product_page_image_medium');


$this->getImage($this->getProduct(), 'product_page_main_image');

When you had used product_page_image_small its return only 88x110 size image.

You can more check size dimension from vendor/magento/theme-frontend-luma/etc/view.xml file for size dimension.
