I am able to get the Sitecore media link by using the Sitecore Scriban Embedded method as follows:

<img src="{{sc_follow i_article 'Thumbnail'| sc_medialink}}">

But, not sure how to get the value of the Alt field value of the Sitecore Media item using the Sitecore Scriban Embedded functions.

You can use {{i_datasource.Image}} or {{ i_item.Image}} to get image src and alt. Here .Image is the image type field name, in your case, it seems like Thumbnail. so, it should be {{i_datasource.Thumbnail}}

Scriban code should be something like this:

<div class="some-class">

The output will be:

<div class="some-class">
<img src="/-/media/Project/Sites/image-name.png" alt="image-alt">

Refer to this documentation for more details: https://doc.sitecore.com/xp/en/developers/sxa/102/sitecore-experience-accelerator/scriban-templates.html

    Just posting the further in addition to this helpful answer that if you want only src and alt attributes then use it like src "{{i_article.Thumbnail.media_url}}" alt="{{i_article.Thumbnail.alt}}", otherwise it will add height and width attribute that can not be suitable in the mobile view.

  • As @PrashantTomar indicated, this is not the true answer as it adds height and width. Thank you Prashant for posting the actual answer in your comment but I wish you had posted it and marked it as the correct answer.
