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

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

i get an undefined.
but accessing any other custom entry from static db array
public static $db = array(
	"Abstract" => "Text",
	"Phone1" => "Text",
	"Phone2" => "Text"


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.
