The image class was removed in 9c03e7f7baf7515e459594e7fe02040fe358df25
It had been only provided for code earlier than MediaWiki 1.11

It's really strange that you're hitting that error, since wfFindFile has
existed since MediaWiki 1.7 (ed4303922f4e850418168595c2a22cdd895081cc)
and the new Image path should never be executed.

I tested with both PHP 5.2 and 5.3 and they don't require an Image class
at all in that case.

Anyway, just changing that line to $img= wfFindFile($title); should fix it.
