Hello everyone, please help me with this issue. The issue is:- I add sanity plugin media in the sanity dashboard. There are some options given on the Sanity plugin image widget. Like alt text and I update alt text for the image. But the issue is how I get all the data on the front end. I don't get any alt text on Groq. Only getting the image URL.

the GROQ query is:-
*[_type == "page" && !(_id in path('drafts.**'))][0] {"id": _id, ...}

import Image from 'next/image';
import imageUrlBuilder from '@sanity/image-url';

import sanity from '../../utils/sanity';
import config from '../../utils/config';

export function urlFor(source) {
  return imageUrlBuilder(sanity).image(source);
}

const SanityImage = ({ src, layout, width, height, alt, ...props }) => (
  <Image
    src={urlFor(src).width(width).height(height).url()}
    width={width}
    height={height}
    layout={layout || 'responsive'}
    alt={alt || config.siteName}
    {...props}
  />
);

export default SanityImage;

You need to resolve the reference in a porjection.
*[_type == "page" && !(_id in path('drafts.**'))][0] {..,
"id": _id, 
"Image": image.asset ->,
...}

Then you can also just query for the alt.text
Mar 6, 2022, 2:45 PM
*[_type == "page" &amp;&amp; !(_id in path('drafts.**'))][0] {.., "id": _id,
"image": image.asset -&gt;,
"alt": image.asset.alt
...}

Happy to help. I struggeled with this in the beginning as well. https://hdoro.dev/learn-groq this here helped me quite a lot to understand the more “nested” functionality of groq
