How can I pull back the {description} information from an uploaded image. Bearing in mind I'm pulling back an image manipulation of the original?

   <img src="{recipe-thumbnail:small}" alt="{description}"/>

You need to use a tag pair for your image:

<img src="{url:small}" alt="{description}"/>

You have a number of variables that can be used inside the tag such as:

{title} {description} {location} {credit}

See for the full list https://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/add-ons/channel/custom_fields.html#variable-pair-usage

  • You're right, thank you Bluedreamer completely forgot about it needing to be inside a tag pair.
