Displays a single image with preview and tranformation options.

import { Image } from 'primereact/image';

Image is used similar to the standard img element.


<Image src="/images/galleria/galleria7.jpg" alt="Image" width="250" />

Enabling preview mode displays a modal layer when the image is clicked to provide transformation options such as rotating and zooming.


<Image src="/images/galleria/galleria10.jpg" alt="Image" width="250" preview />

Use the zoomSrc to select a higher resolution image to display in preview mode.


<Image src="/images/galleria/galleria14.jpg" zoomSrc="/images/galleria/galleria14.jpg" alt="Image" width="80" height="60" preview />

An eye icon is displayed by default when the image is hovered in preview mode. Use the indicatorIcon prop for custom content.


<Image src="/images/galleria/galleria12.jpg" indicatorIcon={icon} alt="Image" preview width="250" />
