Feature: #102755 - PSR-14 event for modifying getImageResource result

See forge#102755


A new PSR-14 event \TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\ContentObject\Event\AfterImageResourceResolvedEvent has been introduced which serves as a replacement for the now removed hook $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['tslib/class.tslib_content.php']['getImgResource'].

The event is being dispatched just before ContentObjectRenderer->getImgResource() is about to return the resolved \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Imaging\ImageResource DTO. The event is therefore in comparison to the removed hook always dispatched, even if no ImageResource could be resolved. In this case, the corresponding return value is null.


Instead of an array ContentObjectRenderer now handles the image resource with the new ImageResource DTO. This means, ContentObjectRenderer->getImgResource() returns either the new DTO or null.

To modify the getImgResource() result, the following methods are available:

  • setImageResource(): Allows to set the ImageResource to return

  • getImageResource(): Returns the resolved ImageResource or null

  • getFile(): Returns the $file, passed to the getImageResource function

  • getFileArray(): Returns the $fileArray, passed to the getImageResource function


The event listener class, using the PHP attribute #[AsEventListener] for registration:

use TYPO3\CMS\Core\Attribute\AsEventListener;
use TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\ContentObject\Event\AfterImageResourceResolvedEvent;

final class AfterImageResourceResolvedEventListener
    public function __invoke(AfterImageResourceResolvedEvent $event): void
        $modifiedImageResource = $event



Using the new PSR-14 Event, it's now possible to modify the resolved getImageResource() result.

Additionally, the ImageResource DTO allows an improved API as developers do no longer have to deal with unnamed array keys but benefit from the object-oriented approach, using corresponding getter and setter.
