How is it that i render the image in the blockcontent into a custom image component? like in a blogpost where I want to display images in the body section that are uploaded in the body which has block content type… this link ( ) didn't help me, as specifying imageOptions in BlockContent displays images very plainly, i couldn't control the width based on screen sizes and image zoom feature that I could implement if I could use a custom image component

Specify an image serializer.
const serializer = {
  types: {
    image: props => <img ... />

I tried that too. But the problem i faced was I couldn’t get to pass the image data in the image tag. For example the only image src that might be helpful is in but that too only has _ref property, which isn’t a link to the image from sanity’s CDN. Do you have any idea where I could get the asset.fluid / asset.fixed data (say if wanted to render it inside gatasby image tag)

Pass the
, (and
, and
properties, if present) to SanityImage , like this:
<SanityImage {...props} width={600} alt="" />
