Project: 
Introduced in branch: 
8.4.x
Introduced in version: 
8.4.0
Description: 

The Media module now includes a Image media source plugin. It adapts and supersedes the Image media type plugin from the Media Entity Image contrib module.

Media Entity Image in contrib will provide a migration path to Image in core. New code that needs similar functionality should depend on core Media and use the Image source plugin from core.

The Image media source plugin is built on top of the core Media API, which differs from the Media Entity API implemented by the Image plugin in contrib in several important ways. If you have code that is using Image in contrib, you can make it work with Image in core by referring to these instructions.

Unlike the original Image plugin it's based on, the core Image plugin does not support EXIF data! Media Entity Image will implement this functionality in its 2.x version, which will be built on top of the core Media system. See this follow-up issue for more information.
