Pageimages class

Pageimages are a type of WireArray containing Pageimage objects. They represent the value of multi-image field in ProcessWire.

Most of the methods you are likely to use are inherited from Pagefiles and WireArray so be sure to take a look at those as well. Pageimages is dedicated to containing Pageimage objects.

// Example of outputting a thumbnail gallery of Pageimage objects
foreach($page->images as $image) {
  // $page->images is a Pageimages object
  // $image and $thumb are both Pageimage objects
  $thumb = $image->size(200, 200);
  echo "<a href='$image->url'>";
  echo "<img src='$thumb->url' alt='$image->description' />";
  echo "</a>";
}
