Querying localFile on images from Prismic returns null

I'm trying to get localFile field from Prismic so I could use it with GatsbyImage, but it returns null.

Image showing query and its result:

Any clue what I might be doing wrong?


Hello @Jere, thanks for reaching out!

Seems like you're missing to add these plugins:

And the plugin configuration of the source plugin requires the shouldDownloadFiles option.

// Example gatsby-config.js file

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
      resolve: 'gatsby-source-prismic',
      options: {
        // Alongside your other options...
        shouldDownloadFiles: {
          // Download a Page `photo` image:
          'page.data.photo': true,

Ah I got it working! I did have the plugins, but missed shouldDownloadFiles. The documentation for it is a bit confusing, at first I didn't understand what page.data.photo was.

Is there any way to automatically download all the image files for local processing? The list could get long with many slices.

I don't believe you can retrieve all the images of your documents at once. You need to call them in each query.
