Generate Bynder images thumbnail when using UIHint.Images


Hi all, I have a Bynder integration and my image property looks like this:

public virtual ContentReference Image { get; set; }

The issue that I have is that when I select an image from Bynder a thumbnail is not generated as a preview in the CMS, and a default thumbnail image is shown instead:

I also tried using the decorator from Bynder [UIHint(Bynder.UIHints.Bynder)], and indeed the thumbnail is actually displayed. But the other issue is that it restricts images to just Bynder. Images uploaded in the CMS are not allowed.

Is there any way to generate the thumbnail for Bynder images using [UIHint(UIHint.Image)]? Or for instance is there a way to use [UIHint(Bynder.UIHints.Bynder)] and allow CMS images as well?

Hi Kevin,

public virtual ContentReference Image { get; set; }

Should work fine, and the built in thumbnail generator should work for both Bynder and Optimizely Assets. 

Here's how it looks:

The image above is from Bynder.

Which version of the Bynder package are you using?

Hello, Frederik Vig. Thanks for your answer.

I am using the package version 6.2.0

In that case there are most likely some restrictions with the asset you were testing with. Could you please try with a different image asset that's marked as public in the Bynder portal.

Hi Sanjay, I recommend reaching out to your Bynder Success Manager or Bynder Support ( They can provide access to the NuGet package and documentation.

Thanks @Frederik

- As per the document and provided asset when I tried to install the package but got the below error

- Another way asking for an id

Please suggest!

Hi Sanjay,

Make sure you have the official NuGet feed added to your package sources. Here's the link to the dependency:
