How do you get GatsbyImage to work with gatsby-sanity-source?I have implemented this (
https://github.com/sanity-io/gatsby-source-sanity#using-images ) exactly as shown in the example, but cannot get it to work as shown.I have formatted my query exactly as shown (notice just the “asset”, without the “fluid, src, or gatsbyImage:

query vehicleQuery($slug: String) {
  sanityVehicle(id: {eq: $slug}) {
    id
    _id
    modellbetegnelse
    manufacturer {
      label
      logoimage {
        asset 
      }
    }
However, this gives me an error on build:

GraphQLError: Field "asset" of type "SanityImageAsset" must have a selection of subfields. Did you mean "asset { ... }"?


If I add fluid, src, and even gatsbyImageData to the query:

query vehicleQuery($slug: String) {
  sanityVehicle(id: {eq: $slug}) {
    id
    _id
    modellbetegnelse
    manufacturer {
      label
      logoimage {
        asset {
          fluid {
            src
          }
          gatsbyImageData
        }
      }
    }
I get a different error:

WebpackError: TypeError: Cannot read property 'split' of undefined

A bit lost here… if I skip GatsbyImage altogether, and just use fluid src with &lt;img src.., the site builds fine, including showing images.

Hey
user P
I can help you with this

Here’s your graphql page query:

profiles {
  id: _key
  name
  bio
  image {
    asset {
      fluid(maxWidth: 700) {
        ...GatsbySanityImageFluid
      }
    }
  }
}

See how I’m using the
...GatsbySanityImageFluid
fragment here
Mar 24, 2021, 10:04 PM
that’s what I think you’re missing
Mar 24, 2021, 10:04 PM
Then here’s my custom Image component
Mar 24, 2021, 10:05 PM
import React, { useEffect, useRef, useState } from 'react';
import Image from 'gatsby-image';
import './Image.scss';

const ResponsiveImage = (props) =&gt; {
  const {
    image,
    className = '',
    style = {},
    onLoaded,
  } = props;

  const [loaded, setLoaded] = useState(false);
  const imgRef = useRef();

  useEffect(() =&gt; {
    if (onLoaded &amp;&amp; imgRef.current &amp;&amp; imgRef.current.state.imgLoaded) {
      onLoaded();
    }
  }, [imgRef.current, loaded]);

  return (
    &lt;Image
      className={className}
      fluid={image.asset.fluid}
      alt={image.alt || ''}
      style={style}
      ref={imgRef}
      onLoad={() =&gt; setLoaded(true)}
    /&gt;
  );
};

export default ResponsiveImage;

You don’t need all that (eg. the onLoad handler), but its a nice little bit of functionality
Mar 24, 2021, 10:05 PM
Here’s a little extra
Mar 24, 2021, 10:06 PM
I would recommend you use
gatsby-plugin-sanity-image
Mar 24, 2021, 10:06 PM
It’s made by
user L
, and I wish I had used it earlier in my project, because it allows for extra control over images sourced from Sanity than
gatsby-source-sanity
