This function was removed. There was talk about a replacement system for it but I don't know the actual status. I think the easiest way would be to just write a similar function yourself. This is what I did after the removal. But I also changed my code from using TLazIntfImage to using TFPCustomImage. I don't know if this is an option for lhelp.
Here is my more than simple function:

function GetFPImageReaderForFileExtension(const FileExt: string
  ): TFPCustomImageReaderClass;
  if FileExt='.bmp' then Result:=TFPReaderBMP;
  if (FileExt='.jpg') or (FileExt='.jpeg') then Result:=TFPReaderJPEG;
  if FileExt='.png' then Result:=TFPReaderPNG;
  if FileExt='.tga' then Result:=TFPReaderTarga;
  if FileExt='.xpm' then Result:=TFPReaderXPM;

hope it helps
