Rendition File Name Regex

A regular expression that can be used to match a rendition to be used to display as the image src. Renditions are looked for beneath the renditions folder located beneath <dam:asset>/jcr:content/renditions.

Fallback Image Src

An image can be selected to be used if no rendition for a given asset is found. The fallback image src will be used directly to populate the src attribute. Even if the fallback image is an asset in the DAM that has a rendition, only the path will be used.
