I want to add an image to an item using powershell script and here is my code. I don't know what i'm missing..


[Sitecore.Data.Fields.ImageField]$fieldValueLink = $Item.Fields[$templateField.DisplayName]
$fieldValueLink.Width = 1324
$fieldValueLink.Height = 577
$fieldValueLink.Value = $itemRow.$fieldTrimmedValue
$item[$templateField.DisplayName] = $itemRow.$fieldTrimmedValue;

$item.Editing.EndEdit() | Out-Null

Example: The following shows how to retrieve an image from the media library and assign it to the image field on a content item.

$homeItem = Get-Item -Path "master:/content/home"
$homeItem.Image = Get-Item -Path "master:\media library\logo"
$homeItem.PSFields.Image.Alt = "I like turtles"

Example: The following shows both editing mode and automatic properties:


# Whatever other fields you want...
$item[$templateField.Name]= Get-Item -Path "master:\media library\auto-email"

$item.Editing.EndEdit() | Out-Null    

# This notation does not require the Begin/End edit calls.
$item.PSFields.Image.Alt = "I like turtles"


  • $item[$templateField.Name] = Get-Item -Path "master:\media library\auto-email"; $item[$templateField.PSFields.Image.Alt] = "GoogleLogo"; $item.Editing.EndEdit() | Out-Null on adding this code getting the following error Index operation failed; the array index evaluated to null. $item[$templateField.PSFields.Image.Alt] = "GoogleLogo"; Jul 12, 2019 at 14:54
  • My example automatically puts the item in editing mode whenever it modifies the field. I'll make an update to follow your example. Jul 12, 2019 at 15:11
  • I am getting this error. The property 'Image' cannot be found on this object. Verify that the property exists and can be set.
