I find this a bit confusing in the documentation. I am not really sure how to start.
I can export the image with the reference_id field. This gives me a list of image location and data that look like this :

471 filename:12.jpg|width:-1|height:-1|widthThumbnail:-1|heightThumbnail:-1|alt:Bed en Breakfast Al Convento|title:Bed en Breakfast Al Convento

However if I understand correctly, I will need more id fields to be able to import to Joomla later. Which fields do I need exactly?

When I import this data into Joomla I understand I need to append the path of the image but this is not so much the problem. The issue is that I need to know which fields from above export will correspond with which the joomla content fields?

Thanks for helping me out here!

To import the Joomla content it requires the alias or title and catid or category_path field. However if you have the content ID, I think we can loosen the restriction for not needing the other fields.

As for the image, you need to know which field you want to use. By default Joomla has 2 images fields the image_intro and image_fulltext, so you need to link it to one of these fields. Optionally you can link it to a custom field that you may have linked to the article. In that case you will need to use the name of the custom field.

Let me know if that helps.
