Group (select supertype) FlexForm field ViewHelper, subtype "file"

Select and render an image

<flux:field.file name="settings.image" allowed="jpg,png,svg" showThumbnails="1" />

Then use <f:image> to render the image in the frontend:

<f:image src="{settings.image}"/>

alt and title tags are not loaded from the file's meta data record. Use <flux:field.inline.fal> if you want this feature.
