hi,
i have added an image in the model:

public static $has_one = array(
   "Photo" => "Image"
);

how can i access it from controller?

when i call

print_r($this)

in controller, i can see the reference to the photo in the listing, but i can't find a way to access it.

when i try

$this->Photo

i get an undefined.
but accessing any other custom entry from static db array

public static $db = array(
   "Abstract" => "Text",
   "Phone1" => "Text",
   "Phone2" => "Text"
);


works.

so, is there a way to access $Photo?

You need to use the method syntax for accessing relationships like that - $this->Photo(); to get the image record.
