EnvironmentProduct: Sitefinity
Version: 9.x, 10.x, 11.x, 12.x
OS: All supported OS versions
Database: All supported Microsoft SQL Server versions
Question/Problem Description

In every culture, the image link is pointing to the default culture.
An image widget is pointing to a page in another culture. When clicking on it the culture is stripped and a 404 page opens. 
The image link of the Image widget, when accessed from a non-default culture is pointing to the default culture.

Steps to Reproduce1. Create a page in two languages (e.g. English and Spanish)
2. On a different page drop the image widget - translate this page too
3. Open the widget's designer and select "This image is a link..." > "To selected page"
4. Point to the page created in step 1 for each language
5. Open the page on the frontend and click on the link

Expected: To open each link in the respective culture - e.g. http://localhost:7230/es/link
Actual: The culture parameter is stripped - e.g. http://localhost:7230/link, and the page doesn't open

Fixed in:
Sitefinity Patch 13.0.7300.0

Refer to Knowledge Base Article 000076924, How to update Sitefinity to hotfix, internal build or a patch for instructions on how to download and install the fix.
1. Create a class ImageModelCustom which inherits from ImageModel
2. Override the GetViewModel and change the GetLinkedUrl method
3. In the GetLinkedUrl add the following:
private string GetLinkedUrl(SfImage image)
	string linkedUrl = null;

	if (this.UseAsLink && this.LinkedPageId != Guid.Empty)
		var pageManager = PageManager.GetManager();
		var node = pageManager.GetPageNode(this.LinkedPageId);
		if (node != null)
			var relativeUrl = node.GetFullUrl(CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture, false); // This line is different in the previous versions
			linkedUrl = UrlPath.ResolveUrl(relativeUrl, false);
	else if (this.UseAsLink && this.LinkedPageId == Guid.Empty)
		linkedUrl = image.ResolveMediaUrl(false);
	return linkedUrl;

4. Register the new model in the Global.asax:
protected void Application_Start(object sender, EventArgs e)
	Bootstrapper.Initialized += new EventHandler<Telerik.Sitefinity.Data.ExecutedEventArgs>(this.Bootstrapper_Initialized);

private void Bootstrapper_Initialized(object sender, ExecutedEventArgs e)
	if (e.CommandName == "Bootstrapped")

Check attached the complete ImageModelCustom.
