Get Image from Post or Page

Add the following function in function.php which is present at the root of theme folder.

function catch_that_image()
global $post, $posts;
$first_img = '';
$output = preg_match_all('/<img.+src=[\'"]([^\'"]+)[\'"].*>/i', $post->post_content, $matches);
$first_img = $matches [1] [0];

{ //Defines a default image
$first_img = "/images/default.jpg";
return $first_img;

Just call the function catch_that_image(), wherever you need to get the image from the article.

<img src="<?php echo catch_that_image();?>" width="75" height="75" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" title="<?php the_title(); ?>" align="left" hspace="5" />
