I’d like to chime in here. Currently there is no implementation of the image view helper available in TypoScript, but it definitely makes sense.

So implementing a TYPO3.Imagine:Image tag with a corresponding ImageImplementation which does the same as the imagine image view helper would be a way to solve it.

We did something similar for the TYPO3.TypoScript:UriBuilder..

It could be done by extracting some of the logic in the view helper into a service that both implementations could use.

You would have to add support for static resources as well, but that’s like two lines of code.

I know some improvements are in the works for improved image handling, but I don’t think these are included.

If you want to work on or help getting it done create a feature issue on http://jira.typo3.org/

As Robert mentioned it’s not about not wanting or planning to do the features, but rather a lack of people doing the work.

We’re trying to grow the amount of contributors to help this issue but it’s something we as a community has to work together for.

Best regards
