If I were mapping a Link type field, I can override the default URL options like this.

[SitecoreField(UrlOptions = SitecoreInfoUrlOptions.AlwaysIncludeServerUrl)]
public Link ThisIsALink { get; set; }

If I were using fluent configuration, it would look like this.

Map(x =>
    x.Field(field => field.ThisIsALink)
     .Configuration.UrlOptions = SitecoreInfoUrlOptions.AlwaysIncludeServerUrl;

How can I do the same with an Image type field?

Looks like is a know issue https://github.com/mikeedwards83/Glass.Mapper/issues/111 ; I suggest you to open an issue ticket on GlassMapper github;


Maybe @MichaelEdwars will fix it in future versions.

Still an issue unfortunately. I just needed the image URL so had to go down the route of implementing an extension method. Something like below

public static string GetAbsoluteUrl(this Image value, ISitecoreContext sitecoreContext = null)
    if (value == null || value.MediaId == Guid.Empty)
        return string.Empty;

    var mediaItem = (sitecoreContext ?? new SitecoreContext()).Database.GetItem(new ID(value.MediaId));
    if (mediaItem == null)
        return string.Empty;

    var options = MediaUrlOptions.Empty;
    options.AlwaysIncludeServerUrl = true;
    return MediaManager.GetMediaUrl(new MediaItem(mediaItem), options);
