You can use template token {!my_picture#url} - it should be available from drop-down helper "Select Merge Token"

Hi Pavel thanks for the reply, sorry I forgot to mention, I'm using a generic page. I need to get the image url from a certain record so that I can display it on my page together with the other fields that I query.

And how do you identify that record? If you're using LOOP construction you can use similar syntax withing the loop.

This API brings up raw date without formatting them. For Image field this will be properties.

You can try to parse these properties and create URL in form

But this may be tricky. Easier way would be:
1. Create List View which filters records the way you want
2. Create LOOP template using that view
3. Use #url template token on records in the loop

You already posted a number of questions. Do you mind if I ask what's your customer name?
