OK, Jason. Sorry this took so long to get back to you. Once you change the code per your instructions I assume you have to re-upload the images in orfer for them to be resized properly.
I would also like to find out where in the code can you eliminate some of the templates and replace one or say two with my own like the pan and zoom one I showed you some time ago.
Coupled with this I assume there is a way to create and store only the image sizes you use rather than all generated by the properties.php.
Thanks in advance, Jason.
